Art in Action is an initiative aimed at exposingartists in the Valley of 1000 Hills South Africa. Art in Action is about empowering, training and equipping artists to generate an income from their work.You can see the works that were exhibited at the everyONEcounts exhibition on our Facebook page or you can read more about Art in Action here.
During the campaign, we were approached by Katie Blundy from Art-In-Action who donated twenty artworks which we displayed as a panel at the e1c exhibition at The Quays. A very generous businessman bought the entire panel of works to display in his boardroom. This donation was in turn donated back to the Art-In-Action group to purchase a T-shirt printer which will enable them to generate a sustainable income to assist them in their community projects.
On handing the donation to Art-in-Action at the close of the exhibition, we invited all the participating members to join us for a ceremony where we handed over beautiful certificates and goody bags for each of the young artists which included a full set of paints, paint brushes and other edible nick nacks ... generously donated by individual members of everyONEcounts and from a substantial donation from the Rotaract Club of Durban.
