FOOD SUPPORT PROJECT IN TIMES OF COVID-19

Aims to involve various agents of our society through art.

Art will be the founding stone to generate an immediate and highly committed effect with the human right to access food.

Through the acquisition of an artwork other agents of the art world such as collectors will have the opportunity to provide food for the most needed during the pandemic.

We will help to overcome the economic burdens of the isolation measures.

How does it work?

Collectors and companies acquire the works, in advance.

A group of artists from the gallery create a series of screen prints.

The artists also print the works on jute bags.

With most of the funds raised, food is purchased from small farmers in Centro de Acopio y Comercialización de Nopal-Verdura, Milpa Alta.

Food sets will be prepared for a family of 4 people for a week that will be packaged in the bags.

A group of taxi drivers will be hired to distribute the food.

Food will be delivered to the homes of families who have become unemployed or low-income.

Prints costs will be covered and artists will receive 10% for the sale of each work.
