New Zealand's first Swap-O-Rama-Rama was on 20 February 2010 as part of the Lyttelton Summer Festival. It was a huge success. Many thanks to all the event's 40 volunteers, who sorted, sewed and screenprinted amazing creations for the more than 250 people who attended!
Swap-O-Rama-Rama is a giant clothing swap and series of do-it-yourself workshops in which a community explores reuse and creativity through the recycling of used clothing. At Swap-O-Rama-Rama consumers are taught to be creators and this transformation takes place through the local talent in the community.
