Event SOS Children's Villages South Africa
2 weekends in June, 5/6 and 12/13 June, a great art event takes place. At 4 locations of SOS Children's Villages, 80 children will paint under the supervision of 16 artists.
The so-called Extravaganza event is hopefully the start of a long collaboration. As far as we are concerned, we will be carrying out many more activities that will contribute to good creative education for these children
3 parties are involved; our distributor Silverray, SOS Children's Villages South Africa and the Royal Talens Foundation. We work closely together to make this event a great success.
Without the great help of our customer Bidvest, Shaun Attwell, we would not be able to realize this partnership. We are very grateful to him for that.
The artworks the children develop, will be sold during an online auction in June. Hopefully this results in a high amount for SOS Children's Villages!
