Art For Awareness Gift Application Update…

Since the release of the little Art For Awareness Facebook Gift Program the stats are (at last count):

Sent: 2073 times…
Total Users: 160…

I think this is a great effort for just over a week of circulation… and there has been more awareness of our groups, our action, our artists and our art brought forward, this group has swelled greatly with membership in recent weeks… You can still contribute art as a gift image if you wish, send a URL of your activist piece to me in a bubblemail…

Group posts…

Been putting links up for anything relevant that casually comes my way about activism in the news and the arts, please feel free to contribute but I must stress relevance… thank you…

Facebook Art Action Union Group

The Gift of Art

A collective of photographer’s that are promoting their effort through RedBubble and everywhere else possible to raise money for charity… Read it all here and see the artists involved and their charitable contributions…

Promotional Materials & Street Teams…

A few people have decided to add our banner…


{For information on how to insert images into your Redbubble profile click here}

… in their profile pages…

when there is more time to focus on pretty graphics, I will be making a whole heap of graphics, gifs and things for us to spread around the net like a virus…. in the meantime though, please feel 100% free to take this graphic and promote it wherever the hell you can…

The idea of having Art Action Union Street Teams is one I have been floating around for ages now… it basically involves recruiting dedicated active members to take these promotional tools and materials, all the web URL’s, emails and newsletters and whatever other promotion you need or want, and start actively going to other sites to spread the word, sending it to friends and handing out pamphlets in the street… maybe we can even make merch and fundraise for something significant one day… ahhh a dream… but one worth sending you all anyway… If you are interested in petitioning for the Union as an active outlet and network for creative activism… please add your name to this list in the forums.
