The Buy Art Not Kids Art Auction
Date: April 4th, 2014
Location: Havergal College – 1451 Avenue Road, Toronto ON, M5N 2H9
What: The event is a silent art auction to be hosted by the BANK committee of volunteers in partnership with Havergal College in Toronto. The event will feature live music, performance art, raffle prizes, sumptuous food, wine and most importantly a chance for you to purchase an array of incredible art by notable Canadian artists. Tickets are $75.
Why: The event itself is two-fold: to raise awareness about child sex trafficking in Cambodia while also raising funds, to benefit Ratanak International, an established Canadian charity (16+ years) dedicated to the abolition of child sex trafficking in Cambodia.
Art Can Change Everything
Art can build up, or tear down; it can raise hope or trigger devastation. It communicates truth, or spreads lies. But can art really change the world? Without acting on it, the change that art points us towards is lost. Art itself cannot change the world, but art can change people. And people can change the world! The Buy Art Not Kids Art Auction will celebrate the connection between art and its call-to-action by showcasing ‘art that inspires’. – Buy Art Not Kids
I have to admit that when it comes to my Little One’s art, that I am a hoarder. It is very hard for my to not put every single piece of paper that my Little One creates on in a memory box. From her first scratches, to her more recent pieces of art, I have it all. I even tend to put the date on the back of my Little One’s pieces of art so that we can remember how old she was when she did them. I love them all. They always make me smile. I even keep copies of her digital creations!
