HAVE A HEART FOR CAMBODIA
Information for Schools
‘Let your imagination run wild, explore new worlds, old worlds, dreamscapes and fantasies.’
We would be excited to have your school participate in IMAGINE 2018, an Exhibition of Victorian Schools’ Art”, to be held at THE MEAT MARKET on Saturday September 1st 2018. The Exhibition will celebrate student art from FOUNDATION to YEAR 12.
It gives our student artists the opportunity to create artworks in any medium of their choice. In fact, we encourage you to engage in broad discussion of the possibilities.
The Exhibition will have the dual purpose of highlighting our students’ art while raising awareness and funds for disadvantaged children in Cambodia.
All artwork submitted for the Exhibition will be silently auctioned. The money raised through this Event will go to supporting disadvantaged children in Cambodia. The 2 organizations we support there, work with children in the slums and with children from poor farming families to give them opportunities to go to school, to learn English and begin to dream of a future.
A Live Auction will feature a selection of photography and paintings by young Cambodian students from the two organizations we are supporting in Cambodia. This auction will be held during the public viewing time.
Our vision is that our students will empathize with children whose lives are so different to theirs. We want to inspire and empower Victorian students to see, through their own actions that they can make a difference.
