Load OUT! a Reuse & Repurposing Riot Plus Community Coat Drive
Saturday, Nov. 17, 2012, 11AM-3PM
At Load OUT!, attendees are invited to take home any materials they need for their next creative endeavor, free of charge. Attendees are encouraged to come prepared with bags, rolling carts, tape, and string to make carrying away items easier. Items available at this year's Load OUT! event include:
* Stacking chairs
* Hard hats
* Sampling jars
Attendees are encouraged to bring textile and e-waste for an onsite collection.
A full list of accepted items for collection may be found here.
Gently used coats will also be accepted in a drive for New York Cares. All coats will be sent to New York Cares for distribution to the homeless and those in need.
OurGoods will also be onsite at 19 E. 3rd Street hosting a live barter meetup, along with participatory Barter 101 workshops taking place at 11:30AM, 12:30PM, and 1:30PM. Barter activities will encourage attendees to find new, exciting ways to share resources with one another in an increasingly difficult creative economy.
