Last Friday, September 30th was the opening of "Heart for Others", a Volcom collective artshow organized for charity.
Volcom's Give Back Series is a program where we team up with a community based non-profit organization to "give back" a portion of our proceeds to their cause. This time, volcom has supported "Integrazio Batzordea", association that helps disabled children for schooling in the Basque Country. Everyone had a great time, enjoying the artwork with fresh beers in the hand, and a particular attention to the screen printing machine that was on fire that night.
We printed teeshirts and screenprinted posters were done live, and all the benefits went to the association.
The collected money will help children throughout their education.
Dominique Idart, Integrazio Batzordea’s president said: “The goal of this partnership is to finance our project of education, and on the other side, to develop a network and let people know about what we are doing. We need partners like Volcom and l’Atabal, to spread the words and touch people.” Some of the art pieces have also been for sale, and a part of the benefits went to the association.
On Saturday, Volcom organized a workshop with the children from the association plus anyone that was interested.
About 20 kids came and played the game with the artists from the artshow. Lots of fun and a really good experience shared from both side.
They have all produced some really nice backgrounds, then printed (themselves) with the screenprinter machine, over their artwork.
Thanks a lot to Zanzibar that helps a lot with the screenprinter machine, L’Atabal for the nice Venue (Jean, Yann, Corrine,..., & Fax for fixing the electricity and lighting), Maxime and his ladies for the beers, and everybody that showed up these 2 days!
Stay tuned for next volcom artshows coming soon...
