ARCHITECTURAL GRILLE is excited to be participating in rise in the city - a unique art event based on New York City, featuring a competition, exhibit and auction, created to catalyze social enterprises in Africa. A truly unique experience where 500 influencers in design and construction discover how architecture combined with social enterprise can solve poverty problems in Africa.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
NYC is being split into 100 virtual blocks. Leading artists, designers and architects are invited to create a work of art representing a block of the city whilst 100 companies have the opportunity to sponsor a NYC block.
All these incredible artworks will be exhibited and available for purchase through an exclusive Auction at the rise in the city event.
WHO DOES IT BENEFIT?
The first rise project, will deliver a new building with accommodation, study and service facilities for the children at a very overcrowded orphanage in Lesotho, Southern Africa. Learn more.
Combined with entrepreneurship training and mentoring, the project will enable the orphanage to provide enough accommodation for the children and to become more self-sustaining by launching income-generating activities. The local community will be instrumental through the entire process, with the support and expertise of industry experts.
rise is a not-for-profit organization, co-founded by BOND Events as an integral part of its Corporate Social Responsibility Program.
