Asheville ShareFest May 31st!

What Would Make it Easier to Share?

REAL Cooperative and SHARE Asheville present the first Annual Asheville ShareFest on May 31st in the parking lot of the French Broad Food Co-op and inside Co-Luminate downtown on Biltmore Ave.  Asheville will join cities all over the world to host a ShareFest on Saturday May 31st as part of #SharingSpring and Global Sharing Day to celebrate local Sharing Initiatives, Collaborative Consumption Resources, and the Preservation of the Commons. Share a Skill, Get Up and Perform, Swap some of your unused Stuff, Exchange some Seeds or Speak your Peace. This is a participant driven event and won’t be the same if you don’t show up and participate.

Activities will Include (but hopefully won’t be limited to):
Really Really Free Market (Stuff Swap), Skill Share, Bike Repair (At Recyclery), Seed Exchange, Entertainment (Open Mic, ‘Show and Tell No Talent Show’), Soap Box (Speak your Peace), Booths, Collaborative Art Projects, Kids Activities… What will you Share?

This co-created event will showcase local organizations, projects and knowledge. Asheville ShareFest will highlight examples of the sharing economy which has become a (new) social safety net and multi billion dollar industry in the new economic framework. The event will be one of over 40 ShareFests taking place in cities around the world in the months of April, May and June as part of the international campaign coordinated by Shareable, Center for a New American Dream, OuiShare and The People Who Share.  Please let us know if you would like to co-create this event with us and offer a Skill, Performance, Activity by filling out this FORM.

SHARE Asheville will be hosting coordination meetings (link to FB Event and details) on Wednesday evening’s from 7-9pm 5/14, 5/21 and 5/28 if you would like to help make this event happen (nudge, nudge).
