2016 Surrey Skill Share Fair seeks presenters for October event.

Organizers are looking for people with interesting skills and projects to present at the third annual Surrey Skill Share Fair.

The event will take place Sunday, Oct. 2 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Chuck Bailey Recreation Centre, 13458 107A Ave.

The Skill Share Fair is an informal community-led event that provides a comfortable setting for people to share skills and learn from others.

Presenters may choose from a variety of formats for sharing, including hosting an information table, running a one- to two-hour workshop or being a wandering performer or teacher. Presenters will receive a free lunch.

Workshops are small and friendly, so presenters do not have to be experts.

The Skill Share Fair is a great opportunity for people to share their skills, interests or projects for the first time. Support is available if needed.
