Benefit auction in Recoleta: 102 artworks painted by 50 children

“On Wednesday and Thursday, you can participate in a project that provides support to children aged 8 to 12.

In 2021, more than 50 children from the community organizations Gauchito and Centro Cultural Almirante Brown in Tigre participated in the ‘Mi Barrio’ art workshop. Their artworks are being auctioned off these days at CUBO in Recoleta.

Under the slogan ‘The culture of my neighborhood’, the exhibition with a charity auction began on Tuesday and will continue during Wednesday and Thursday.

There are 102 works of art made by children in the art workshops of the Gestionar network.

It is a space for children to express themselves, providing them with tools to project a wider and more inclusive future through culture.

‘In each class, not only the artistic development of each child is promoted, but also the search and construction of their own identity and that of their neighborhood, under the slogan of Neighborhood identity and childhood,’ explained the Gestionar Esperanzas Foundation.

The work was made possible thanks to the contribution of Martín Saráchaga, the project’s patron, who donated all the necessary materials for the children to create their works and the space to exhibit them. All the funds raised will go towards continuing the activities organized by the Gestionar network. ‘Art is a powerful tool for social transformation and inclusion,’ said the organizers.
