A new local nonprofit, so new it doesn't even have its nonprofit status yet, wants to encourage local artists, artisans and farmers to get together and barter. 4C stands for "conscious, creative, cultural, connection."
The group's first event is a fundraiser Sunday evening titled "Imagination Masquerade & Trade," said 4C volunteer Jennifer Arnold on Thursday.
The organizers encourage people to come to the Abbey Theatre at 8 p.m. fantastically dressed and bring a personal creation to trade.
DJs Smiley Coyote, CodeStar and Peter Robot will spin while Stacey Sotosky and Alex Oliszewski will provide dramatic visuals.
Megaphone and the ASA Fire Tribe will perform, as will unnamed drummers.
4C says it "is dedicated to uniting community by embracing nature, sharing inspiration and celebrating creativity."
Arnold said the group plans seasonal events.
The next will celebrate the summer solstice.
