Call for Solidarity

Fundraiser Action for Earthquake Regions across Turkey and Syria

Artists in Solidarity NL organises a solidarity action in collaboration with the Nieuwe Instituut, Kunstinstituut Melly, International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam, Het Nieuwe Café, Mondriaan Fonds, Stimuleringsfonds and the Rijksakademie. The action starts on 17 March at the Nieuwe Instituut and online, with an evening of coming together for conversations, presentations and a sale of art and design works. The action will run for two weeks until 31 March.

All proceeds will go to NGOs and grassroots organisations who don’t get direct support from national organisations and larger institutional structures. The funds collected will be used for supply of drinking water, hygiene infrastructure, food and psychological support.

Supported organisations: Afet için Feminist Dayanışma: Organising aid from Istanbul to the region; Mor Dayanışma: for Women and children in Antakya; Lubunya Deprem: LGBTI+ and sex workers across the region; Kırkayak: Migrants and refugees; Heyvasor: Red Cross across Rojava; Dört Ayaklı Şehir: for Animal survivors of the earthquake.

RSVP for 17 March, 18:30 at the Nieuwe Instituut.
