artAmore Sitges collaborates with «Kings and Queens of Kibera» exhibiting the work donated by the sculptor Patricia Cancelo. The amount of its sale will be 100% donated to the project, whose objective is to provide housing, education, clothing, and community to street children living in Kibera, Kenya.
During this pandemic situation that we are now living, we are all busy thinking about our own concerns, until someone makes us realize that there are much more pressing problems and that with small gesture of solidarity, we can help other people. It is when we look around us, when we become aware of reality.
Rosa Girona, journalist from the Belleza Solidaria blog suggested us to collaborate with Marina Gatell’s project, to raise funds to shoot an adventure film called “Queens of Kibera and the Kidnapped Sun”. The screenplay was imagined by the protagonists themselves, children from the suburbs of Kibera in Nairobi, and their aim is to claim on the way we are exploiting our natural resources and destroying our health and the health of our planet. The proceeds of the film will be destined to education, clothing, and community to street children in Kibera.
The project is also stopped due to COVID19, and the reception center has been forced to cancel the charity dinner they celebrate annually, to obtain founds to take care of the children, who are in a critical situation right now.
artAmore Sitges collaborates in this charitable cause, exhibiting the work donated by the artist Patricia Cancelo, who has also joined the project. The amount of its sale will be donated 100% to the Queens and Kings of Kibera project.
“Queens of Kibera and the Kidnapped Sun”, is a project that is born from solidarity, you can also collaborate. You can buy the work of Patricia Cancelo, exhibit in artAmore Sitges (or via website www.artamoresitges.com) or participate by watching the complete short film and leaving your donation.
Marina says «if you want to write comments or messages to encourage the protagonists to continue boosting their illusion, they will be very happy to have their talent recognized! We all need a warm hug right now. We believe that fiction can be a great tool to transform reality” and right now to make “Queens and Kings of Kibera and the kidnapped sun” come truth.
