3rd Annual Cultural Visions Art Show - SUCCESS

Combination for success: 1200 people, 650 feet of art
work, 100 artists, 45 volunteers, 30 performers, 5 restaurants and 1 amazing venue.
Global Awareness Project's Cultural Visions Art Show held at 2001 Nightclub was our biggest event to date. Raising close to $9,500 and selling over $5,000 in art work it was our highest grossing fundraiser yet. In these questionable economic times we have to ask ourselves how this was possible? You cannot measure success in dollars only and the GAP team seems to be constantly asking the following questions:
How can we measure community? How can we measure the strength found in support? How can we package the freshness in forming new friendship and the joy in re-connecting with old ones? How can we brand the willingness to put in hours of volunteer work to transform something bare to something beautiful? These questions and more were answered the night of the show but how do we keep it going? If you have a heart for service and art and want to get more involved with Global Awareness Project please contact us at info@theglobalawarenessproject.org
Thank you to EVERYONE who helped make the
show a success!!!
