from the roots in the right direction
Start date: 1 May, 2017
End date: 15 July, 2017
For the 150th anniversary of Canada the songwriter Antonio Piretti TOZ will be cycling 6,600 km from Vancouver to Halifax. Upon his giant bike tour he will play concerts, but more important we will be hosting 3 art events for charity with the registered Canadian charity organisation Art Takes Action for Charity.
The art events will be a creative mixture of all kinds of art styles. From visual art (photography, painting, sculpture etc.) to music & performing arts. The location should have a stage and some room to present some pictures on easels. The events are open to everybody and therefore no entry charge will apply. Please note, that we do not have budget for a rental fee. The donations are voluntary and can be done at the event. The artists may sell their artworks and a percentage of the sale will go to Art takes Action for Charity. The number of the participating artists will be selected according to the size of the location.
We have scheduled art events for the following dates:
Vancouver: 27th April, Toronto: 10th June & Halifax: 8th July
