2012: Women’s Shelter, Moss, Norway
The Women’s Crisis Center in Moss, Norway is a resource where abused women and children can get help. The center also provides a 24 hour phone-service, counseling, food and shelter. It has lost a lot of funding in the past year and the staff has been cut from 19 to 11. This is a very important cause, not only for the women in a crisis situation but also for their children. See their website here.
The exhibit ran in May of this year and was another success! Together with 360 artists from 32 countries, we helped raise USD 4,000 for them (NOK 24,000). Not only did the money go to a good cause, but again—all of the proceeds went to the shelter. 100%.
2010: Children’s books for Moss public library
The first exhibit was announced on October 21, 2010, and was organized to help the Moss public library raise funds for children’s books. 260 twitter artists from 24 countries participated and David’s kitchen was flooded with art! The event went national and garnered local recognition in Norwegian media (TV, radio and newspapers).
