We’e joined forces with the incredible New Acropolis team to bring the homeless people of Johannesburg two renditions of Chow4Change. These events were held in April and September 2017 in Johannesburg CBD. We had a chance to work with the homeless men and women of the city, and give them a chance to pick out a few new clothes, to be served a meal, and to have their portrait taken.
Our first Help Portrait Pretoria event was be held on the 3rd of December 2016 in the Pretoria CBD. The focus of this event was the women and children from Potter’s House. Potter’s House serves as a home for women in crisis between the ages of 19 and 60, as well as their children.
We held a fund raising event on the 3rd of November at StorySpace Studios. Here, guests had a chance to sit back, relax, enjoy live music performed by Janie Bay and Southern Heights, and buy artwork by some of Pretoria’s most illustrious creatives. There was also scrumptious pizza for sale from Bravo Pizzeria.
