Art in aid of AIDS

‘Art in aid of AIDS’ – The Emthonjeni Trust

19- 23 Feb 2014

 

  • The Emthonjeni Trust – helping those living with HIV/AIDS in the Eastern cape.
  • This is the 7th AAA event and we hope to raise enough funds to run art lessons for HiV/AIDS orphans : therapy for these youngsters is all about self belief and identity.
  • Exhibition, workshops and demonstrations in Water colour, Acrylic and Collage by well-known artists.
  • Mornings for demonstrations (Pre-booking), Afternoons open to all to view the exhibition.
  • We plan to have several more artists than those shown including some of the young talent that The Wilson outreach programme has been encouraging.
  • We are also running a workshop in St Pauls Church for young people and the work from that will be shared with the young people in Grahamstown township before going forward to a National exhibition of South African art.
