The Beauty and Power of Art

Saving Lives

Take Action has initiated an art auction to fight hunger in unison with the prominent

Tajan Auction House in Paris, hosting the event.  

 

The 2022 Autumn auction will have a collection of art pieces donated by students, emerging talent and renowned artists.  Funds raised through the auction will be donated to the

World Food Programme.

 

The World Food Programme is the food-assistance branch of the United Nations. It is the world's largest humanitarian organization, the largest one focused on hunger and food security, and the largest provider of school meals. 

 

The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) is the 2020 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, "for its efforts to combat hunger, for its contribution to bettering conditions for peace in conflict-affected areas and for acting as a driving force in efforts to prevent the use of hunger as a weapon of war and conflict."

Is fashion taking environmental responsibility as part of the show?

A Baptist minister, King led the civil rights movement by peacefully pursuing a vision of racial justice. He was assassinated in 1968.

“Camp trash” might sound harsh as a descriptor for any form of media. In truth, there’s nothing wrong with either campiness or trashiness. The problem is that the former is difficult to define and can come undone depending on the creator’s intent. The latter, on the other hand, can feel forced and gratuitous if not deployed with the right amount of panache.
