Really, Really Free Market @ Rumah Api
This is the 3rd time, RRFM have been done at Rumah Api. Here’s are RRFM FAQ:
What is The Really Really FREE Market?
It‚Äôs like a large community-wide garage sale, except EVERYTHING IS FREE! Yes, that‚Äôs right. FREE! Everyone is invited to bring things to GIVE AWAY!
So this is like bartering or trading, right?
NOPE. Bartering and trading go something like this: I‚Äôve got this great shirt here, what can you offer me for it? The RRFM goes something like this: I‚Äôve got this really great shirt here, I don‚Äôt really wear it anymore, but I‚Äôd hate to see it go to waste. Do you want it? Great! Here. It‚Äôs yours!
Why would I want to do thing like that?
Because you have too many things already! Because you‚Äôre just going to throw it away anyway. Because it FEELS GOOD! Do you have things cluttering up your home? Maybe some stuff that you don‚Äôt use anymore, but you know that someone else would probably love. One person‚Äôs trash can truly be another person‚Äôs treasure!
What should I bring?
Bring *your thing* to the RRFM, whatever that is! Material goods, food or drinks, a service to provide, a skill you have that you want to teach to others, a performance, or anything else!
What if I don‚Äôt have anything to give away?
Everyone have something to give to others. The RRFM isn‚Äôt just about giving away *stuff.* What is it that you do? Why not come to the RRFM and find a way to do it for others, except this time for free just for fun of it. As a gift to others, as a gift to yourself. It‚Äôs a way of reclaiming meaning to your job, to give it as a gift, unmediated by commerce.
Who runs the RRFM?
Well, the RRFM consists of the sum of its participants. The gift you bring to the event, helps create what the event is for others, just as what others bring to the event, creates what the event is for you. That said, there are some folks who came together to help create the structure for RRFM to work. But it is our hope that soon enough, our role within the RRFM will be the same as everyone else‚Äôs. That is, that each of us decides our own level of involvement.
The RRFM is yours!
Take advantageous of that. Make it what you want it to be! If you want to see something happening at the RRFM that isn‚Äôt already happening, than make it happen! If you want to see more people coming to the RRFM, help spread the word! Send emails to your friends, make and distribute flyers (make your own or download them from the website), talk to people about the RRFM.
