Market Place: 14.00-18.00, Free entry
Local community members, school children and Brixton market traders will be invited to our ‘Market Place’ to participate in an exchange of items which to them represent Home. The definition of ‘item‘ is to be determined by individual traders, it could be a physical object, a photograph, a piece of text or sound, or even food.
Market Place will be a work in progress throughout the festival weekend and as items are traded the transaction will be recorded. Photographs will document details of the items, the trader and what the items represent. When the market place closes the items traded and information recorded will be presented in a small booklet which will include a narrative on the meaning of Home to the individual. Themes may include home & culture, home & memory or home & worth.
