Deadline May 24, 2017
Depot Art Space, Auckland
A fundraising arts event to assist refugee resettlement in Aotearoa. If you are concerned about the refugee crisis, here’s your chance to make something to express it and help people in need at the same time.
Art for Change are organising a fundraising exhibition to help refugees resettle in Aotearoa.
We’d love you to donate a 10”x 10”x 1½” artwork to feature on the montage wall of the exhibition. Artwork should consider some aspect of the refugee experience or your reaction to it.
All funds raised will be given to two amazing local groups who help refugees: the New Zealand Red Cross refugee programme in Auckland, and the Auckland Refugee Family Trust (ARFT), who work toward reunifying refugees with their families in New Zealand. (Go to www.redcross.org.nz/what-we-do/in-new-zealand/refugee-programmes/ or www.facebook.com/RefugeeFamilyTrust/
for more info).
Dates: 17th June to 5th July 2017
Parallel to the exhibition are a fund-raising concert and a speakers evening with former refugees (to take place on World Refugee Day, Tuesday 20th June). Amnesty International, the Red Cross New Zealand and Auckland Refugee Family Trust will have a presence at the gallery.
We look forward to hearing from you
Date(s) - 27/03/2017 - 24/05/2017
