Call for art submissions for Gendered Intelligence Art Auction - please share widely!
For the 2nd year running, Gendered Intelligence is hosting an art auction to raise money for our work improving the lives of young trans people
Our art auction has proved to be a very successful event, last year raising £1500 for Gendered Intelligence trans youth.
Hopefully, with your support, we can make the second year into an even more fantastic fundraising effort that will go towards furthering the GI cause!
If you’ve wanted to contribute to Gendered Intelligence but haven’t had the funds or the time to donate, consider donating your artwork for our Art Auction!
We’re looking for anything artists are willing to submit - whether they be canvas paintings, photographic prints, sculptures, jewellery, etc. We encourage a diverse range of artwork - whether you’re a professional artist or you enjoy art as a casual hobby, we want your submissions!
The art auction will run alongside our annual holiday party on 15th December to celebrate all the work we’ve done in 2012.
We’re definitely interested in submissions from trans and gender variant artists, but if you’re an ally who’d like to submit to show your support, please do get in touch with us.
Please contact us to get involved! Or, if you’re not an artist, please repost this widely to your artistic friends and communities!
