MedShare’s Faiths Act Fellows’ World Malaria Day Art Auction is fast approaching. Want to learn more? Watch their official promo video below.
Since 1998, MedShare has diverted $100 million+ worth of supplies and equipment to prevent more than 2 million cubic feet of valuable supplies from entering local landfills. However, occasionally there are supplies that can simply no longer be used. Rather than dispose of these materials, MedShare has donated these supplies as canvases for innovative artists.
Using the surplus medical supplies, artists will have the opportunity to create works of art concerning the themes of diversity, unity, and common action. In this way, even the supplies that will no longer help save a life directly can be used indirectly to fight malaria. The recycled materials will be offered to artists as a canvas for art that will thematically address the humanitarian crisis of malaria. Artists will have the challenging and inspiring task of creating art that tackles the question of how faith and spirituality can forge a better world. This will be a unique opportunity for artists to gain international traction and diversify their portfolio.
