The refugee crisis in Europe is getting worse by the day. Hundreds of thousands of people risking their lives on a daily basis in the lowering temperatures to have better lives while they are crossing or trying to cross borders. Governments are still unable to provide the money, manpower and resources to prevent a humanitarian catastrophe over the next few weeks and months. Artists have been affected by the crisis and this is reflected in many recent artworks popping up on social media.
solidARTy.org is a non profit fundraising project supporting initiatives and volunteer organizations that are helping refugees in Eastern Europe. Artworks donated by artists and collectors are auctioned off on the site with new artworks going up almost daily. All funds will be donated to the Are You Syrious initiative. The site which was set up by an art enthusiast / journalist is just a start and with time might be extended to help other initiatives worldwide. Take a look at available artworks here and if you wish to donate any artwork to the cause then use the contact page. Also don’t forget that you can donate to the cause directly by the Are You Syrious initiative site.
