2013 Annual Fundraising Dinner and Silent Auction

This year we are very fortunate to have secured photographer and author, Chris Parkinson to speak at our annual Fundraising Dinner and Silent Auction.

Chris spent four years living and working in East Timor. During this time he documented the changing political and social climate in East Timor through its street art. He amassed over 3000 photographs and hundreds of hours of ChrisParkinson_Photointerviews. His 2010 book Peace of Wall showcased a selection of these inspirational stories and artwork. The book explores the turbulence of contemporary history in East Timor told through the country’s street art.

Chris is currently working with Affirm Press and East Timor’s free art school Arte Moris, on Myths and Murals, a national literacy and street art project exploring and celebrating the East Timorese identity.

Tickets are $110 (general) and $90 (concession) which includes a three course dinner, drinks package, entry into the lucky door prize, fantastic guest speaker, and a performance. Tickets are available online at – www.artspeacefoundation.org/dinner.

The Dinner and Silent Auction will be held at the Mercure Grosvner Hotel, North Terrace Adelaide on Saturday 12 October 2013 from 7:00pm.
