Barter Boat


Barter Boat is a carnival-inspired pop-up trading post captained by a trio of sailswomen who travel from city to city trading with the citizenry. Focused on moments of generosity, Barter Boat engages audiences through the act of barter, oral storytelling, and visual art. We ask with every interaction: after money, what makes something Valuable?
