Artists support NGOs on International Women's Day
Mar 12, 2018
A local Art Association in Nyon, Confluents des arts, hosted their first Art Festival in the city of festivals at Fondation L'Esp Asse. The theme of the event was "femininity" to celebrate International Women’s Day on the 8th of March 2018. The 4-day Art Festival was intended to be an interactive experience with an array of art animations, workshops and demonstrations for adults and children alike (free of charge). The festival wass animated by 30 local artists including painters, sculptors, storytellers, caligraphers, poets and more... Local artists Steph Fonteyn and Uli Van Neyghem proposed a Collaborative Art ® animation on the opening night to engage guests around the theme of femininity. The public were encouraged to contribute their ideas by writting on paper flower-shaped cut-outs and collaging them onto the portrait of Frida Kahlo, painted by artist, Steph Fonteyn. The portrait was then auctioned to the highest bidder to raise 250.- chf for the NGOs Terre des Hommes and DOCIP.
