World Citizen Artists organised, along with Gua Africa and Safe Passage, a unique music & art competition on the theme of 'Hope'. The competition required a minimum of $1 entrance fee paid directly to the two nonprofit organisations involved in the jury along with WCA. As a result of this initiative, those who participates helped sponsor:
-235 weeks worth of bus travel to university for Gua Africa students.
-254 full days worth of work on the garbage dump for those whom safe passage is helping in Guatemala.
Our team made a selection of the best moments of the ONE FOR ALL initiatives and made a 25 mins video, click below to watch the video!
PASS ON THE BLESSINGS
I strongly believe in the World Citizens Artist mission of promoting global awareness through creativity. When the opportunity presented itself for the competition, I wanted to participate and feature my work among other talented artists with similar interests. I am truly honored to be the recipient of the 2016 World Citizen Artists Award “ONE FOR ALL” Music Competition.
A GLIMMER OF HOPE
The World Citizen Artists ONE FOR ALL competition, with the theme of hope was inviting for me. Hope is a powerful emotion and action. It has been my personal experience, living with a chronic health issue that hope can get one through a lot. It may not change your situation, but offers you the possibility of a happier life. Both the arts and the practice of Hope played a huge role in my wellbeing during the worst times in my illness.
