Do you want to make a difference? Do you love art? Then by all means read on!
There is a Belgian social activist organization called Beauty Without Irony (BWI) - the mother organization of 'Designers against AIDS'!- which has the same motivation. That’s why BWI is organizing an amazing campaign called ‘Air/Port 2013’ on Indiegogo right now, using crowd funding. It's an exhibition, but not a normal exhibition, it's so much morethan that. ..
An amazing amount of international artists, including Olaf Breuning, Daniel Riera, Felix Richter, Tom Tosseyn, Mustapha Rafik, Mohammed Laouli, Baki, Ben Ali, Nick Hannes, Marie-Françoise Plissart, Thierry Van Biesen and many more will team together with young art students from both Essaouira and Antwerp, with their works being printed on huge flags lining the seaside and the originals being exhibited in galleries and other spaces in the medina. After the exhibition the original art works will be auctioned, with the proceeds going to 2 charities, so the most disadvantaged youth in Essaouira will get a chance to step into their adult professional life in the best and healthiest possible way. One of the charities is the Association Lutte Contre le SIDA (ALCS), as HIV/AIDS is a big problem in Essaouira too, the other charity is called Project 91.
I don't know about you, but as far as I'm concerned, this is one of the most proactive and realizable goals set by an organization to help other people.
Furthermore, if you're tired of "invisible" results when you give money to organizations, this is the one you should donate to!
You will be able to see results quickly, as the exhibition will be held this summer in Essaouira in Morocco and next year Air/Port will come to Antwerp in Belgium.
Join us and take part in giving life to the exhibition and be one of the first people to donate! Not only will you be part of an amazing concept, but you will also be receiving either a digital postcard or a hand signed photo print by a young art student, emerging or professional artist so you can have a piece of this, sure to be, staggering exhibition for yourself!
Join us in creating an exhibition that will redefine the word ‘impact’ and contribute to a future which, without your support, would be far worse for some of the young people in Essaouira.
