This weekend LA artists such as Audrey Kawasaki, Shepard Fairey, Mr. Brainwash and others will team up at REVO LA to help raise funds and raise awareness for projects going on with education in Indonesia. From their site:
“Our goal at this time is to put on an art show this Spring (2009) that will heighten awareness of West Papua, Indonesia’s broken school system. The money raised by this event will help fund “Sekolah Dasar Balem Wamena” (SDBW), a model school, which has recently become a light of HOPE in the corrupt regions of West Papua.
Through REVO LA, SDBW will be able to offer these children much better learning material, as well as provide them with larger teaching grounds, so even more students can attend. Most of all, with SDBW in place, students are less likely to fall into the hands of abusive teachers”
The event takes place Sunday, Oct 4th at 7pm at UCLA ACKERMAN Grand Ballrooom. It’s $10 to get in. For more info, check out this video.
