Original post:

Come to the next Singapore Really Really Free Market (SRRFM) at:

Marina Barrage
8 Marina Gardens Drive, Singapore 018951

on:

26th September 2015, Saturday, 11am to 3.30pm.

This one will be held as part of EarthFest PREMIERE! For the uninitiated, please find more information in the second half of this post about SRRFM and how you can take part. Exciting!

IMPORTANT notice:

you NEED a TICKET for admission this time round, register for yours here now, courtesy of SRRFM. All tickets are free, EarthFest needs to know the number of attendees so as not to waste resources. Tickets directly from EarthFest have all been given out.

Maximum of 5 tickets per registration, and provide an email address that you can access using your mobile device, because they say “no printing please!”.

If you have never been to a sustainability carnival before, do read up on EarthFest to find out more, and you will have a more enjoyable and more comfortable experience!

For instance, “Our food fair won’t have disposables – we’ll be washing on site! The food is all planet-friendly (vegetarian and vegan) requiring less water, land, and food inputs to produce while still being delicious and healthy (and from some of Singapore most highly rated restaurants!) “.

The following information is pretty essential for shopaholics: “Vendors won’t give you plastic bags – you have to bring your own or buy a reusable one!” Then again, just buy what you need, and what will be useful to your friends and family if you are getting gifts for them. Any kind of consumerism is not encouraged even if you are buying a T-shirt made locally from Fairtrade and/or sustainable cotton yet it never gets to see light being buried in your closet. Too sad.

SRRFM

SRRFM is an event, usually held bi-monthly and without a permanent location, for everyone to give and take old or new items as well as to provide and receive services for free. It is based on the concept of sharing resources, caring for one another and improving the collective lives of all.

By sharing, we are reducing consumption and waste of our natural resources, re-using what we don’t need anymore by passing it on, and most importantly, showing everyone that there are more sustainable and loving ways to live. There is no need for money and exchange at SRRFM!

Come to the next SRRFM to experience resources sharing, but bear in mind that this is not a place for us to dump thrash or hoard items that we don’t need. The services I have seen at the numerous SRRFM that I attended include shoulder/back massage, simple yoga, story-telling, guitar performance, Tarot card reading, poetry writing, portrait sketching and many more!

You may also volunteer your service to help maintain the smooth running of the Market for a couple of hours or throughout and explain to newcomers how the Market works. Use your talent in retail merchandising to attract more people to browse around. Or simply be there to have fun and make friends!

SRRFM is run by Post-Museum, an independent cultural and social space in Singapore which aims to encourage and support a thinking and pro-active community. It is an open platform for examining contemporary life, promoting the arts and connecting people.

If you wish to be on Post-Museum’s mailing list, please write to them at: admin@post-museum.org, they organise and participate in many different events and community activities.

Post-Museum is on Facebook and Twitter.
