On December 12th, The Vera Project, Seattle’s non-profit, all-ages music and arts venue, and Hollow Earth Radio, Seattle’s premier online independent radio station, are joining forces to host a one-of-a-kind fundraiser and holiday extravaganza: Swap It. Spin It. Bring It. Screen It. The Vera Project is transforming into a marketplace for independent music and crafts, along with live music, and interactive silkscreening. All proceeds help support music, art presentation, and arts education through the Vera Project and Hollow Earth Radio.
The DIY marketplace will feature independent Northwest record and cassette labels, musicians, silk-screened show posters, vintage record dealers, local artists, craft-makers, and designers selling their wares throughout Vera’s venue. This is the perfect opportunity to find a one-of-a-kind gift just in time for the holidays. The event will also include live musical performances by Northwest musicians, Hollow Earth DJs spinning on site, a bake sale, a raffle for hand-printed posters, and much much more!
Original Vera Project logos will be designed by 10 local designers and made available to the public to silkscreen. No experience is necessary to silkscreen, and for just $5 a print, Vera silkscreen instructors will help attendees print one of the logos on any fabric item they bring; blank shirts will also be available for purchase.
Following the event, the Vera Project logo designs will tour participating Café Vita locations throughout 2009, with prints available for purchase.
Come join us for an opportunity to enjoy and support the Seattle art and music community!
