The Event


Please read the Website so you know what the ethos is, what to expect and what is expected, how to participate, what to bring etc. 


You must be a member of the Talent Exchange:

  • This is a no-money event - you can gift, barter or swop or use the Talent Exchange. 
  • Sign up if you are not already a member. It's quick and easy and free and is a handy tool for being able to trade without money before, during and after the festival.
  • Go to (if you live in Cape Town) or (Regional /International) 
  • You will be asked what your offering is. This does NOT have to be the same as the offering you bring to the event.
  • You will receive a TE number within 24 hours, which you must enter when you buy your ticket above.
  • There are many exchanges all over the world, so join the one closest to where you live. All exchanges can trade freely with each other.

If you are already a member of the Exchange

- please enter your Talent number and Talent balance - this is so we know that YOU know, if you have a positive or negative balance. 

The idea is to keep your balance around zero. If you have a negative balance it means you have only taken and not given to your community, so you need to think of something to do or sell on the Exchange in the next few months or have a definite plan to earn talents at the Fest. See the website for ideas.  

If this sounds complicated, don't worry, it's all part of the learning, you'll get the hang of it and be glad of this amazing system to trade with people without needing money, or banks or vat.
