The Real Art Roadshow

Founded by Fiona Campbell, The Real Art Roadshow moves contemporary art to schools around New Zealand in two customised trucks set up to display art and run education classes. You can read our earlier posting on the Real Art Roadshow here.

Last year the Real Art Roadshow visited 6 public places, 132 schools and had over 70,000 visitors through their doors. It's a great project, all funded by private patronage and contributions from supporters. But like all independently funded projects, it needs ongoing financial support. If you'd like to help, this link takes you to the Real Art Roadshow website where you can find out more about their programme and how to make a contribution.
