'Art for Education' is an event that brings together a diverse
range of New Zealand artists, to raise money for girls' education
in places where females are subject to discrimination, poverty and
As a graphic design student I am eager to use my skills and the
talent of artists around me, to create a positive change. It is
with this in mind that 'Art for Education' came about.
Proceeds from this event will go to the Malala Fund, an
organisation helping to facilitate the education of girls in places
such as Syrian refugee camps, Kenya and Nigeria, where large
numbers of girls are prevented from going to school.
'Art for Education' will feature works of many styles, targeting a
broad demographic and encouraging people of all ages to take an
interest in art. It is a chance for artists to exhibit and sell
their work, collaborate and connect with other people from within
the community. All of this whilst helping a good cause.
The artists involved are:
Lizzie Snow - fortyonehundred
Karlin Morrison Raju
Benjamin Gary Richards
'Art for Education' will be held at the Mt Eden
Village Centre from the 30th of June to the 2nd of July. The
opening evening will feature drinks, nibbles and Jazz thanks to the
