Share gifts of light, gifts from the earth on the West Bank during the 2017 Northern Spark.
Gifts are nourishment for humanity, and our first night market will focus on the gift economy.
“A gift economy, gift culture, or gift exchange is a mode of exchange where valuables are not traded or sold, but rather given without an explicit agreement for immediate or future rewards.”
Northern Spark is a free all-night art festival exploring the effects of climate change through participatory projects happening in neighborhoods along Metro Transit’s Green Line.
The 2017 Northern Spark will be June 10 from sunset to sunrise. Our gift economy inspired market will include interactive stations where guests can create receive and share gifts created with community members and artists.
