ConceptArt.Org Benefit Show- Streaming Live in just a few hours - with Android Jones
We are doing something very special tonight, at a last minute jump in and help as best we can.
Please join us for this very special live painting demonstration and presentation by the one and only Android Jones. We are doing an impromptu benefit show to support the charity Project Hope. Android Jones is going to be doing a live streaming painting directly from Massive Black in San Francisco and it is being streamed to the event which is raising awareness for great causes in Africa.
Things Project Hope does:
You know your laptop and wacom and iphone and tech gadgets all around you? Well those contain minerals like tin and others. Those minerals are being mined out of Africa by unpaid and child workers. Project Hope works with artists like Common and Dave Matthews amongst others to make this happen. Shepherd Fairey is also a big supporter. It is founded by Andi Skull and her husband. He was the first western observer of the Darfur Genocides and is the person behind the documentary The Devil Came on Horseback.
This fundraiser is going to assist Sawa Sawa Fest in Kenya which provides hundreds of jobs to creatives in wartorn Africa and the surrounding region.
Andrew is going to be doing a live digital painting from his Fine Art series and will be showing how artists can communicate to help improve the world with images. Please join us.
The Devil Came on Horseback is an amazing documentary. We had it as part of the United Nations Association Traveling Film Festival that I have been a part of and Co-chaired in my area. This is definitely a worthy cause and a legitimate group doing some really forward moving activities in Africa. This is an amazing deal to see Andrew at work and to help a little with a big problem
Just paid for it, even though I have no idea if I'll actually be able to attend it at all (it'll be 3am once it starts here...) but I figured 10 bucks won't be missed. Hope everyone will have a good time watching Andrew do his magic
