We’re holding a fundraising art exhibition and auction! The exhibition will run from Monday 17 August to Sunday 23 August at Matchbox Studios, 166 Cuba Street, Wellington. Artworks will be available for purchase throughout the week, with an auction at 6pm on Friday 21 August.
More than 40 artists and craftspeople have contributed a wide range of artworks – including paintings, jewellery, sculpture and photographs – and they have been priced to be as affordable as possible, prices ranging from $20 to $400.
Contributing artists include Mica Still, Pinky Fang, Deano Shirrifs, Jamie Mackman, Joe Mcmenamin, Lucita Peek, Lucille Rauscher, Ellaquaint, Toby Morris, Minu, Sophie Oisea, Rika Nagahata, Scott Savage, Nathan M, Grimoire, Zach Webber – and many more.
InsideOUT is run by young people, for young people, and all of the money from this fundraiser will help us to support those facing issues such as homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying at school.
Our work making schools across New Zealand safer is vital for the positive health and wellbeing of LGBTQIA youth around the country, but currently our capacity is really limited by a lack of funding. The money raised will enable us to reach out and support even more young people to live safe and free of discrimination.
A huge thank you to Victoria Beesley for all her work organising the exhibition!
