WORDS Michaela Stehr IMAGES via @artistsforequity on Instagram


Artists 4 Equity is an art-based initiative set up by @protest_aspraxis on Instagram to raise funds for community upliftment in the form of an online art auction.

The Nelson Mandela Day fundraiser will run from now until Sunday 19 July at 8pm – you will be able to bid on a large number of pieces created by local artists, with the money raised being donated to the artist’s charity of choice.

The organisations include:

To bid on an artwork, you will need to comment on the artwork of choice and place your bid in increments of R100. The artist will send you the banking details of their chosen charity, which you will pay directly. Upon receiving a proof of payment, the artist will organise delivery of your piece. Delivery, shipping and collection of artworks is arranged between the artist and the buyer.
