“Introducing Art to Change the World’s “SWAP and Barter!” “SWAP + Barter” is an initiative started to explore the concept of bartering within our local community, through trading goods and services with other artists and community members. This topic is especially relevant during the Holiday season, trying to balance gifts for family and friends without breaking the bank. “SWAP + Barter” is a multi-faceted project, with opportunities for artists to trade in-person or online, for physical artistic goods, commissions, or services that those in our community may need a little extra help with. “SWAP + Barter” will be launching with our first in-person trading event at ACW’s New Member Party on November 19th! Interested in getting involved or attending and trading at our first event? Visit, or email Project Manager Lin Boemer at”
