I was fortunate enough to receive a door. Yes, a door. One door from Jo’burg Child Welfare. They sent me a door in the hope that I could turn it in to art.
Here are the first photos of me getting organised, fixing up the door and laying down the first coats of paint:
Here’s the blurb on the goal for the 100 Doors of Hope:
100 doors and a 100 people raising money for Jo’burg Child Welfare.
JCW has tasked 100 people consisting of artists, musicians, celebrities, authors, comedians, photographers, cartoonists and graphic designers to each take an old door and turn it into a piece of art.
These doors will be auctioned in September to raise much needed funds for Jo’burg Child Welfare
Watch our progress with this project and spread the word. You can help us make this happen with a small donation:
Who is on board?
John Vlismas, Mango Groove, Jason Hartman, Evolver, Ard Matthews, Craig Native, Jeremy Maggs, Kim Engelbrecht, Grethe Fox, Hlubi Mboya, Abigail Betz, Rasty, Sharon Sampson, Ruda Landman, Jodi Bieber, Mel Bala, Soli Philander… and the list grows.
I’ve seen some absolutely magnificent doors that have already been created. Obviously my focus is on a Rocking South Africa – not surprising.
My thoughts were that I should try hard to document the entire process (whether the final product is something to behold or not) and maybe through the continual status updates on the progress of the door raise some awareness and interest in my door which will raise the purchase price at the auction!
The doors will be auctioned off to the highest bidders sometime in September. So head over to the Facebook page and have a look at your favourite door and start saving funds for a good cause!
As I go along with the door I’ll post updates on SA Rocks, Facebook and Twitter. So keep following!
