For something fun and different, we set up a market stall at the Mardi Grass festival in Nimbin, New South Wales. We have attended the festival as visitors, many times before, but it was a novel experience being stall holders. We set up shop in our 3m x 3m stall and enjoyed the passing parade of people. Nimbin Village is alternative, magical and down right hippy. There are aspects that are sad and run down but it can be so charming if you give it a chance. If freedom of expression is something you value, this little village does not judge.
We wanted to have a feature in our stall that was interactive and free, our contribution to the festival vibe. We came up with Message from a Stranger. People were able to write a short message to a stranger and in return, read a message from a stranger, written by a previous person. We did not screen the messages and half of the time we never found out what was written. We simply asked that people were respectful and wrote something positive. The response was fantastic. People loved it! Some people elected to read us their message and others said they would savour the opening of their message for a later time.
