WE WELCOME YOUR DONATION
We have several live projects running at the moment. The first is supporting and promoting the work of young artists in Syria who we are currently developing our postcards from Syria Project. Your donations enable us to provide materials and internet data for artists in Syria and to support them in getting their work seen internationally.
The second project aims to open a drop in centre for refugees in Neumarkt and surrounding areas in the South of Germany. The drop in centre will provide computer and printing facilities, a space for workshops, classes and training, a cafe and library of resources and cultural centre.
In the summer of this year we set up our first cinema on a camp in North Germany. Over the course of several projects the cinema, and our library of films, has grown and we'd like to share that with other camps. Pop up cinemas provide a place to laugh, snuggle up, stay warm and escape from the trials of daily life together. They provide a space for learning, sharing and forgetting everything for a moment. Our first cinema was started with a £35 projector and a £20 screen and it provided hours of fun and entertainment. With £1200 we can fund a minimum of 6 cinemas in camps across Europe and we can provide access to a library of culturally appropriate films. Please help us reach our target and help others to find some relief from the hardships they are facing this winter.
We have visited several camps in Germany this year to undertake large scale art projects with Art for Action. We have more projects planned and we will post details here when they are finalised. When these projects are live we use your donations to set up an on site cinema and cafe to conduct workshops in as well as running small and large group art sessions. Project costs include paint, ladder hire, transport subsidies for our volunteers and food for the Blue door free food cafe.
If you would like to help us support our community of artists or contribute towards the costs of developing learning resources please donate using the friends and family option on paypal.com and the email address or use the just giving donate link on the home page for live projects.
With Love and Thanks for your support
