Virtual Drink and Draw Fundraiser for Astoria Food Pantry
Join us for an experimental, welcoming and community-filled live figure drawing event! All ticket proceeds will go towards Astoria Food Pantry – a community space in Astoria shared with local mutual aid projects to engage in direct aid, activism, and social services, such as providing free, nutritious food to neighbours. Everybody is welcome to the event! No previous figure drawing experience is necessary.During this two-hour event, we will have four amaaaazing models posing in a variety of ways
The event will take place on Zoom, with the link being sent upon registration. Bring your favourite drawing materials and drinks! Suggested ticket prices are $5-20.
100% of ticket sales will be donated to Astoria Food Pantry (AFP). AFP is entirely funded through individual donations: “We don’t receive support from the government, and we don’t receive any money from grants or food from any major food banks. This independence allows us to not require anyone to show an ID or answer questions about their household, allowing us to serve everyone in our community, even if we don’t speak their language or if they want to keep their information private.” You can find out more about the necessary mutual aid and food justice work they do at www.astoriafoodpantry.com.
Let’s make marks together and support one another through local mutual aid initiatives!
Spread the word + hope to see you there!
Q: Where does it take place?
A: Good ole’ Zoom! Links will be sent upon registration.
Q: Is it okay if I come late for the Drink + Draw?
A: Yes! The event is ‘drop-in’ style, so come through any time between 7-9:30pm. Stay for as long as you can!
Q: Do we have to share our drawings
A: Not at all! In between sets, we spent about 5 minutes sharing our drawings (i.e. holding them up to the screen and being spotlit). It’s a very supportive environment, as folks often say encouraging words about the drawings. However, this is totally optional – if you’d prefer not to share, that is absolutely okay!
