We are celebrating 7 years of The Black Sheep Animal Sanctuary in Otaki and 11 years of our Opportunity for Animals opshops with our first ever fundraising ART AUCTION! We are looking for artists willing to donate a piece of artwork to help our animal rescue and protection work Artwork is asked to be submitted by 8th May. We will try to organise transport of artworks where possible to reduce the cost to artists. The show will be mixed media and mixed theme and any donated artwork will be gratefully received. General categories so far include animals, animal rights, environmental, feminist, intersectional and nature. The exhibition will be held at Thistle Hall in Wellington from Monday 29th May till Saturday 4th June – we hope to see you there! The Black Sheep Animal Sanctuary is owned by the Animal Protection Society, Inc., and is dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of abandoned and abused animals. We work predominantly with ex-farm animals and have over 180 animals on site. Our kaupapa is intersectional: pro-feminist and anti-racist; opposing sexism, inequality and environmental destruction, and we acknowledge local iwi and hapu as tangata whenua. We are queer and queer-friendly. The sanctuary is run mostly by volunteers, and financially supported by donations and our independent Opportunity for Animals opshops in Newtown, Miramar and Otaki. On site in Otaki we value empowerment through learning and sharing practical skills, especially with people of minority backgrounds, and we seek to support both human and animal rights against all forms of oppression. We are a registered charity so any donation, including artwork, can be claimed back as a tax credit More details of the auction night, online bidding and other details to come, watch this space!
Last Friday in the month. Please get in touch for the location this month.
