Empty Kingdom & the Hope Campaign are proud to announce our official partnership in support of ReCREATE: ATX, a fundraiser and all-day art event at SXSW! The Hope Outdoor Gallery is one of the nation’s largest outdoor art galleries, a place for local artists to share their work, focused on positive and educational messages. What began with Shepard Fairey’s mammoth Obey record album poster series has flourished into one of the most beautiful destinations in Austin. But to be ready for the public, the walls need your help first! We are throwing a fundraising campaign to rehabilitate and maintain the walls for the year, as well as provide programs and opportunity for the youth to learn about and participate in art projects! If you’re in Austin, TX on March 10th, we’d love to see you there! Please check it out, and share the campaign with all your friends, we will love you forever: www.indiegogo.com/recreatehope And to our 15K facebook fans, if everyone donated just one dollar to the cause, we’d meet our goal in one day! The point is, every little bit helps! For all business/blogs who are willing to help spread the word and want to take advantage of our sponsor benefits, please email: sxsw@[email protected] for a sponsorship package.
Volunteers getting down!
