Full details – exhibition to raise money for Vietnamese charity combating child trafficking

Full details have now been announced on the exhibition I mentioned in a previous post.

Reminder – A friend of mine (livormortiszine) mentioned they were contributing to a charity sale to raise money for Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation, a charity working in Vietnam to help rescue and care for victims of human trafficking, street children, and other young people.

The event is being organised by Livy Nelson.

The call out is asking for artworks that can be sent digitally and reproduced as A3 prints, although it is possible that they will also accept physical items through the post, but it’s best to talk to the organiser before arranging that.

Here are the details –

Planned exhibition to raise money for Vietnamese charity combating child trafficking

A friend of mine (livormortiszine) mentioned they were contributing to a charity sale to raise money for Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation, a charity working in Vietnam to help rescue and care for victims of human trafficking, street children, and other young people.

The event is still in the planning stages yet, but I thought it would be good to let people know now so that they can express interest or follow organiser, Livy Nelson on social media to be kept up to date with plans.

Covid-19 coping round-up

Begin with a digressions then get to the point, that’s my way right?

Digression – you all know that Covid-19 is keeping many people home (and bored) so I thought, why not steal an idea from the great Comic Reporter and do a rolling round up.

be a good fan

I’ve started thinking about how to make social media work for those people whose work I admire and how to get it to raise their profile

I’ve put together a few tweets already, and have now turned them into a moment that you can find here
