Artfully Unforgotten is a non-profit that uses art as a means to raise awareness of and resources for vulnerable communities throughout the world. Their last project benefited a Rwandan orphanage through a multimedia event, which included video from founder, Heather Metcalfe's trip to Africa.
Heather is currently working to raise funds for Afghan organizations supporting women and children following her recent trip to the middle east. This project will soon be another multimedia exhibit that will include video shot during her trip (which I am thrilled to be working on now), local artist's work and a book.
In the meantime, please check out DUMBO Art Show, Vol. 3, a collaboration of local artists that includes painters, photographers and sculptors. Don't miss it on Thursday, September 17, 2009 from 6 to 9 p.m. at 79 Front Street in Brooklyn.
