The Hands of Action Art Exhibition and Fundraising Auction now has a project manager!
With a generous donation from Mr. Simon P'ng of Malaysia, we are now able to begin purchasing the basic necessities to the get art project off the ground.
In the interests of sustainability, the environment and basic economics (think of the local shopkeepers), the materials will be purchased locally in Uganda, rather than fly them half way around the world.
In addition, to improve the pool of "talent", Moses at Hands of Action has suggested we expand the project to include other local orphanages and schools. We can also introduce various categories of painting etc. to reflect the lives and aspirations of the children.
I have been canvassing folks far and wide about the best way to get the paintings hung in a proper gallery, or at least a venue where they'll be appreciated by a reasonable number of people.
And of course, there will be the online gallery and auction.
It is now up to Moses and Claire to work with us at Ridealist and all of our friends to make this project the success it deserves to be for the benefit of the children and their communities.
