Energizing Refugee Camps Through Art
Sharing the POWER of ART with Malian Refugee Communities!
Help us launch our next project Energizing Refugee Camps Through Art, a youth and public arts project designed to take place in two Malian refugee camps in the Sahel of Niger from September to December 2013. We created this project in order to share the power of art with refugee communities, knowing that there are few opportunities for self-expression and cultural representation in refugee camps. Through this project we will empower 36 Malian refugee youth to create public murals for 20,000 Malian refugees!
We currently have over half of the budget of US $27,500. We’d like to thank everyone who has contributed thus far, but we still need your help to close the gap and reach our goal of raising US$6,000 by September 9th!
Please donate what you’re able to out of the kindness of your heart through our fundraiser on indiegogo and spread the word to help us start our work with these refugee youth and their communities in September.
