Amnesty International: Strike – Chasing the Dream

March 1, 2014 @ 2:00 pm - March 6, 2014 @ 3:00 pm

Opening in the Main Gallery
Saturday 1 March 2 – 3.30pm

Strike is an exhibition and auction of art created on Beehive matchboxes that celebrates the humble match to raise funds for Amnesty International. It features artists, designers, jewellery makers, fashion designers, sculptors and crafty sorts. Last year we auctioned off 60 matchboxes and we look forward to doing it all over again!

For this exhibition the theme is Chasing the Dream. It’s all about doing what you believe in and standing up for freedom of expression. The boxes will be exhibited for one week and will be auctioned off on Trade Me. This is a great way for you to celebrate creativity and support Amnesty International.

Bid for you favourite matchbox here!
