Artpreneurs for Change began its Round 2 in November 2013. This round will be closing by the end of February 2014. The salient milestones of this round are:
This round will close by 28th February 2014. The letters of recommendation as well as certificates for the ATPs will be provided to them once all the material (process summaries, artwork, stories) have been submitted to the responsible project personnel. The information from Round 1 is being compiled and processed by a team member. The process summaries will be changed into stories and shared with our donors here on Global Giving!
Learning from challenges faced in Round 1, Artpreneurs for Change spent the 7 months on thorough planning and promotion of the programme. The activities during this time period include:
We are hoping that the new round deems as successful as the previous rounds helping us in achieving our goals.
Artpreneurs for Change wrapped up its activities of Round 1 in the first week of June 2013. The activities began in March 2013 and they consisted of:
Another achievement in the past three months is that we managed to set up an exhibition for artwork from our pilot round. The main purpose of the exhibition was to create an awareness of art as therapy as a practice amongst people in the Karachi art community. We managed to, successfully, reach out to a lot of people as well as to sell about 11 paintings.
Our aim is to continue having more exhibitions so that we can not only generate some funds for the project, but also continue in creating an awareness about art as therapy. Currently we are in the process of promoting our activities using different forums, along with planning for Round 2.
