Invitation for Colours of Africa

What: Textile or fabric art A4-size. The choice of materials is your own.
 
Theme: Rainbow
 
 Colours of Africa
 
Goal: Annette Jeukens, Hella Sluyters, Jacqueline de Jong-van Baalen and Laura Liebenberg are going to use the entries to construct three-dimensional objects which will be auctioned during a textile event in April 2010. This event is to be held in Essen in Belgium.
 
Proceeds: These will go to the Chris Hani-crèche in the town of Tulbagh in the Cape Province in South Africa. The Town Council of Essen has an affiliation with the Council of Witzenberg (of which Tulbagh is a part). One of the on-going projects is to erect a solid building for the crèche, which is currently housed in a shack. The aim is to develop a proper early learning centre for these pre-school children.
 
In order to enable us to make the objects for the auction, Colours of Africa need many entries! You are invited to participate and to spread the word so that we can help the children at the Chris Hani-crèche in South Africa.
 
The deadline for the rainbow-entries is 1 December 2009. Please complete an entry form from www.coloursofafrica.be and send it with your Rainbow quilt to: Colours of Africa, c/o Annette Jeukens, Boutenslaan 7, 4707 NC Roosendaal, The Netherlands or Colours of Africa, c/o Laura Liebenberg, Leemstraat 45, 2910 Essen, Belgium
 
The entries become the property of Colours of Africa to enable us to construct objects for the auction. Each participant will receive a small gift from us. For more information please see www.colours-of-africa.blogspot.com
