Two of Ecologistics’ sponsored organizations, The Peace Project and “Where There Once Was Water” will be holding fundraising and viewing events as part of Art After Dark in San Luis Obispo March 2nd.
“Where There Once Was Water” is a feature length documentary film produced and directed by local photographer Brittany App that holistically examines our current relationship with water, and explores ideas for moving collectively towards an equitable water future for all life. Brittany has hired editor and filmmaker Garrett Russell to assist her in the final editing of the film. She is raising funds to finish the film and donations can be made at her Art Show and Fundraising Party at Studio 2G Architects, 1540 Marsh St. Suite 230, San Luis Obispo, CA on March 2 from 6-9 pm.
The Peace Project is the vision of local artist David Settino Scott to create a sanctuary devoted to the recognition of the intense human desire for peace. The sanctuary will house fourteen sculptures created by David as a memorial to the Buddhist monks and the eight Americans who self-immolated in protest of war. The sanctuary will serve to inspire personal meditation and provide a space for educational lectures and programs. Some of the remarkable statutes will be on display at The Steynberg Gallery, 1531 Monterey St., San Luis Obispo, on March 2 from 6-9 as part of Art After Dark. Donations for construction of the sanctuary will be gladly accepted.
All donations to these two wonderful local projects are tax deductible. If you cannot make it to one or both of these events please consider making a contribution to them online via the Ecologistics web site.
