A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity of volunteering at an Art Mobile show - 100-50-1 . (Yes, theirs such a thing and its wonderful!) 50 of the most talented Creatives / Mobile Photographers donated two of their images to be purchased at this show. The money raised went to a non-profit, 100cameras, where the money went towards helping kids give back in their community through photography. With that money they are able to help attend to local community needs like education, lifeline needs, HEALTHCARE. You can read more about it here. This mega fun event took place at the NWBLK bldg. These Photographers flew in from all over the States to attend such an inspiring event. Not to mention the Sponsors ( VSCO / INKFI / ARTIFACT UPRISING / ONA BAGS to mention a few)!!!
Here am I on a break when I snapped a pic of one of the head curators and another volunteer (Eileen) going over the dimensions. What I thought was suppose to be done in two hours took seven hours to get at 60%!! Who knew so much would go into hanging up frames and getting them all flushed? Granted, their was 100 frames that needed to be hung.
At the start of the event, I helped at the front to check people in. Their were other volunteers as well and it was so much fun meeting other creatives. It was nice to be apart of a community with no-ifs-and-or-buts. These people weren't afraid to take their creativity and soar. I felt at home.
