WOMENXWOMEN PHOTOGRAPHIC ART AUCTION, 13 June 2019
Supporting resilient refugee women in-need, alongside NGO Movement on the Ground
WOMENXWOMEN photographic art auction is a collection of conscious female photographers from around the world that have been inspired by the story of resilient refugees and donated one of their beautiful works, to be auctioned to the most passionate bidders.
In line with the name of the partnering organisation, Movement on the Ground, the theme will be INSPIREDXMOVEMENT. It will be up to the artist to donate or create a piece they feel fitting.
Social therapy activities. Refugee women are often the caretakers of themselves, their family and community 24/7, leaving no time to participate in critical social therapy based activities, which can lead to depression, isolation or loss of hope. Funds will go directly towards the creation of and new MOTG/WXW Innovation, a ‘Laundry Sanctuary’. This hybrid new community space uses the moment women are free during washing to create space and sanctuary from the everyday. There will be specific female and child focus spaces with story sharing, lessons in language & 21st century skills and simply a space to escape the daily realities they face.
TRIBES Coworking. A stunning, central Amsterdam location where the theme and spirit of the space is inspired by The Mosou tribe, a world where females rule.
