Community Art & Music Fair at Church of the Brethren: December 5, 2015
Dear community artist,
You are invited to be part of a special event celebrating art and our community ties locally and in the world!
Our first goal is to bring artists together, particularly in Midtown and Riverside, and offer a venue to share talent and treasures with our Wichita community. This will be an opportunity for folks to shop for meaningful gifts of art and craft, listen to live music, eat warm nourishing soups, and spend time with friends.
Our second goal is to raise money for a project called Second Step. In South Sudan, educational opportunities stop after 10th grade. Second Step provides funds for girls to go to Uganda to further their education through schooling or vocational opportunities. This important project helps women find higher quality and meaningful work. This is an initiative of New Community Project, who works with local organizations of South Sudan to make best use of the money, and 100% of funds donated go to the projects themselves.
A group of grade school kids at the First Church of the Brethren, with the support of their parents and friends, are raising money for this scholarship. We are not charging a table fee to set up your art, but would ask that 10% of your sales be donated to the fundraising efforts for the Second Step initiative. We will also be raising money through food sales and donations. We are excited about supporting the local art community while sharing our treasures with our global community.
We would love for you to participate in this event. If you are interested, could you please send a photo of your work along with your full name and telephone number to WichitaArtMusicFestival@gmail.com. We will do our best to make space for all of the artists who are interested and will provide a table and two chairs for your use.
We look forward to hearing from you!
Peace and Blessings,
Church of The Savior
