An Online & Physical Exhibition by Chris Auret & Friends
In support of the successful Indiegogo Crowdfunding Campaign:
As a reward for contributions to the campaign, donors were gifted their choice of an A3 Eco-friendly, Limited Edition Print. The majority of these prints came from a selection of paintings and photographs by myself. I then extended an invitation for art submissions from friends and strangers world-wide, which were then carefully curated and added to the catalogue of artworks available.
Since the success of this campaign, which included larger "donations" from project share holders, we have become a team of five members. For the most part, the last three years have been somewhat observational, as we came to terms with the extent of our life-long task. Personally, It has been a difficult journey with many ups and downs including a fire which burnt two thirds of the property and a half-made compost toilet in November 2018. We managed an exciting build of a large communal structure at AfrikaBurn earlier that year, which was dismantled and is now waiting to be rebuilt on the land (slightly scorched but miraculously saved). Our neighbours, Pachamama, have grown from strength to strength. What started out for them as a retreat space, is now more of a forest restoration project, a healing/retreat centre and educational institution. Recently, they have been supported by Greenpop in the planting of 2000 indigenous trees. We are currently exploring the idea of joining forces, broadening the scope of their project as it very much aligns with the intentions we set out to act upon.
There are still a few prints for sale, with 15% of proceeds going towards Pachamama.
