Swap-O-Rama-Rama is Back

This past spring ArtsConnect and Douglas College co-sponsored Swap-O-Rama-Rama. And now they’re all set to do it again, just in time for Halloween!

Swap-O-Rama-Rama is an event that taps into the DIY, green and frugal trends, and adds a fun, fashionable and social twist. Participants swap a bag of clean clothes they don’t want anymore for some new-to-them items, and re-make them into something even better. Or, in other words, they re-funk their junk. There are materials, equipment and experienced help on hand as everyone decorates, sews, silkscreens or paints new creations.

There will be a red carpet where you can model your new creations, if that’s your thing, comparing “before” and “after looks” and offering inspiration to others. But mostly, there’s just be a whole lot of fun and a whole lot of people working together.

The first Swap-O-Rama-Rama saw hundreds people of all ages and abilities show up, and they had a total blast. To see what went down, read ArtsConnect’s recap of the day.

Sound interesting? Here are all the details:

When: Saturday, October 23 from 10am-4pm
Where: Douglas College – David Lam Campus, Main Atrium [map]
Cost: $2 for students, $4 for individuals, $6 for families – plus a bag of clean, used clothes, of course!
