Here’s a heads up about a cool event happening here in Edmonton next month:
It’s a silent auction featuring local, emerging and mid-career artists where you don’t bid money, you bid volunteer hours. How awesome is that? There are lots of organizations to choose from including the Youth Emergency Shelter S0ciety, Edmonton Foodbank, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Fringe Theatre Adventure and many more. It sounds like a great way to not only support local artists, but also help out local organizations. Plus, it might make art a little bit more accessible for some of us!
Here’s the det’s:
-It’s at 7pm, Saturday October 17th at the Transalta Arts Barn
-Tickets are $20 and a recommended pledge of 20 hours
