We created the concept for ART:FEED as a cultural and musical event to celebrate Kenya’s rich artistic heritage. We went with an in-your-face design to get the attention of X+Y gens on social media and digital spaces. The evening featured authentic African foods, handicrafts, and art, donated by many artists from around the globe, including myself.
To keep the kids front and center, we collaborated with host, Frame My Art, on a “wall of affordable giving.” We covered a 30-foot wall with polaroids of the kids, each with specific needs and dollar amounts written on the back. In this way, guests could simply choose a keepsake photo and pay at satellite tables all over the event.
In conclusion, the event was a great success. The auction raised money for the school, C2C got many sponsorship pledges and donations, plus they gained volunteers for future events. Want to learn more about Cradle to Career: Kenya?
