Drawn To Develop
An annual event that helped tp promote social change through artistic initiatives. Acclaimed photographers were asked to create original artworks inspired by drawings from street youth around the world. Working directly with Street Kids International, a Canadian non-for-profit based in Toronto, to help provide the drawings that were then allocated out to each artist. An incredible array of professional photographers were assembled to make this idea into a reality. Our first year had drawings come in from Nepal, Kenya, India, Georgia and Russia. (2008-2011). Photographers included; Floria Sigismondi, Andcric Ljubodrag, Graydon Shepard, Shanghoon, Russel Monk, Matt Barnes, Ishi. Regina Garcia, Chris Gordaneer, George Simhoni, Raina Kirn, Derek Shapton, Finn O'Hara, Shin Sugino, Darrin Klimek, Kerry Shaw, Pete Soos, Clay Stang, Robert Goshgarian, Genevieve Caron, Joanne K, Laim Sharp, Toni Hafkenscheid, & Angus Rowe Macphereson.
