We all have amazing things to offer. And when we share what we have to offer, we see our own value in a new light while making life easier for each other. The same counts for sharing what we need, with the opportunity to find a connection, solve practical problems, and build deeper relationships.
Join us from anywhere on Friday, June 18th for Starter Cultures’ first Offers and Needs Market!
The Offers and Needs Market is a two-hour guided process in which community members meet to identify and exchange their passions, knowledge, skills, resources, opportunities, and needs. It’s a fun and effective way to connect, grow towards more comfortably expressing your offers and needs, and begin conversations that further weave our interdependent, social fabric together.
Watch this short video about what to expect.
Through Offers and Needs Markets around the world, participants have found employment, connected with like-minded people, learned organizing strategies, or met an accountability buddy to name a few. The process is a proven way to boost self-esteem and trust, while dramatically increasing the sourcing of quality goods and services.
What’s more, the Offers and Needs Market is proven to catalyze and deepen relationships. When we share what we have to offer, we see our own value in a new light while making life easier for each other. The same counts for sharing what we need, with the opportunity to find a connection and solve practical problems of all kinds.
When sharing offers and needs, each participant can determine their availability and location, the urgency of their need, and whether an exchange involves payment, barter, negotiation, or is gifted. Afterward, there’ll be a vibrant networking session.
