An Evening with James Taris from Australia, Tuesday, 11th November 2003, 7.30-9.30pm at The W.I. Hall, Webber Street, Falmouth (behind Tesco).


JAMES TARIS around the World- (31st May, 2003 – 3rd July, 2004) – James with 10 concrete sculptures outside an Art Museum in Shanghai.

Between November 10th and 13th Falmouth LETS are very pleased to be hosting the world’s most enthusiastic LETS supporter on his 400 day World Tour. He’s travelled to LETS in many different countries, including China, Japan and South Africa and has many interesting stories to tell, so come and welcome this amazing friend of LETS to Falmouth, and bring your friends. Make a note in your diary now.

His name is James Taris and he’s a LETSaholic. And he’s so addicted to LETS that in 2002 he travelled to eight countries (UK, Spain, France, Germany, Holland, Norway, South Africa and Japan) educating people about the benefits of trading locally. And as of May 31st this year, he’s launched into his World LETS Tour which will take him through 18 countries, on 6 continents, over 400 days, ending on July 3, 2004.

LETS stands for Local Exchange Trading Systems, they are local community groups where members can exchange their goods and services with each other, without the need for cash. And it’s this feature that has enabled James to travel internationally, with only a plane ticket in his pocket! Because everything else; accommodation, meals, etc. are provided by LETS members in exchange for his services.

James is the founder of an International LETS Directory with links to over 1,500 LETS groups from 39 countries around the world.

If you’d like to know more about LETS, and how you can improve your lifestyle by trading locally, James Taris will be speaking at the W.I. Hall on Tuesday 11th November at 7.30pm

…Don’t miss it!
