In 2009 I was in Capetown, South Africa where someone took me to this huge industrial building. Full of A5 drawings. Everywhere. All drawings could be purchased for around 10 EUR and profits went straight to a good cause. This amazing concept would suit Amsterdam perfectly. So I decided to contact the organization. They hooked me up with Cyril, who wanted to give it a go as well. We teamed up with a bunch of friends (like Kim, our rock!) and colleagues and in 2011 the first 1000 Drawings Amsterdam edition was a fact.
Born & raised in 2013 and 2015, 1000 Photos Amsterdam. Same, same, but different. This time photos could be purchased for the good cause.
Unfortunately we all have busy lives and ended this foundation in 2018.
The main thing is that you do something for a good cause in an active way. Everybody can participate. By donating a piece of art or by buying art during the sales expo.
If you submit art, you’ll be exposing it in Amsterdam during the sales expo automatically. Join the creative stage or become the owner of great artworks, from upcoming and well-established artists, for only 10 EUR each.
