Oficina de colagem Com – Nina Fraser e Sangita Paryar
The pieces in the 100 for 100 collection were produced between 2014 and 2020, and are all priced at €100, unframed, including EU shipping. For the next six months, 10% of the sale price of the 100 for 100 collection of selected artworks will be donated to CRESCER, to assist their projects helping chronically vulnerable homeless people in Lisbon who do not have the support mechanisms in place that we were lucky to have.
It's been difficult to write this for a number of reasons. Firstly, sometimes it feels like it was all a bad dream, in actuality we are here, walking, breathing, unharmed. How appropriate is it to tell this story, in a time already filled with difficulties, loss and sadness. Why add to it? How can I possibly distance myself enough from this to write a ‘newsletter’ about it - should I just be factual, should I ignore the fact that life will never be the same again, for worse and also for better, that everything has been reshuffled and put into a different place to where it was before?
It’s something that is difficult to ignore, a part of our personal story that will shape everything to come. Everything to come depends on how we go forward now, and already we are witnessing some incredible gestures of support from so many individuals. In just two weeks we have temporary accommodation, tools to start work, clothes, offers of furniture, instruments.. It's truly astounding, and has reinstated my absolute belief in mankind, really.
The only thing that remains to be said at this moment is that the journey has just begun. If you wish to help us along the way, we are eternally grateful for support. Its not easy to take a lot of large items at the moment, but there are several different ways to help, listed below;
Donate to Gofundme Fundraiser in English pounds, organised by Ali Murfitt
Donate to Gofundme Fundraiser in Euros, organised by Atelier Concorde
Donate to Noni's Fundraiser to help her become independent
Transfer money through MBway if you have it - 920025717
Join the Facebook group where we will slowly request for second hand items and other support.
And thanks to everyone who has already showed us love, I haven't had a chance to thank you all individually yet but I hope to soon.
Wishes for a brighter 2021 to all,
