This is SUCH a cool idea, I love it ♥
1000 Drawings is an empowerment project that culminates in a massive art sale to raise funds for a deserving cause – Streetlight Schools – a ‘registered non-profit that aims to create affordable, exceptional primary schools through innovations in technology, pedagogy, teacher development and infrastructure.‘
In November (date TBC) 1000 Drawings will host South Africa’s biggest, one night only, inner-city art exhibition and sale to raise funds for education, taking place in Johannesburg, where buyers will be spoilt for choice with a variety of art works available, all on sale for ONLY R100 a piece!
Wishing I lived nearby so I could go, but because I don’t, I’m going to try my best to make the time to send off a submission in the next few days and I’m challenging you all to do the same!
The project is calling on all South African creatives to #GiveADoodle – you can donate anything in the arts and crafts realm that is A5 in size, including photographs, embroidery, paintings, doodles and more – use your imagination peeps, just get it there by the end of September/early October if possible 😉
