Bushwick 'swap-o-rama' lets artists trade items, mingle

Posted: Updated:

A "swap-o-rama" event was held in Bushwick Sunday, where artisans could swap items and mingle.

Paradice Palase hosted its first artisan swap, so people could support the space, meet other artists, get their hands on new supplies, or simply donate to others who are looking for some new inspiration.

Artwork, art supplies, clothes were some of the items people were exchanging.

Organizers say their mission is to create opportunities for emerging artists, build a support system within the arts communities and broaden accessibility.

Any extra supplies will be kept for future projects at the space, or donated to Materials for the Arts.
