Melissa Loughnan of Utopian Slumps is curating an exhibition of doodles by actors, designers, architects, artists and anyone really. You’re even in with a chance! So rip out a favourite page of your sketch book, find that aimless drawing you did in the margins of the phone book and your doodle could be auctioned at ACCA.
This is all to raise money for Shebeen; a not for profit bar opening soon in Melbourne. Profits from each drink they sell will support a development project in that drink’s country of origin. Seriously! For example, the proceeds from you buying a Vietnamese beer goes directly towards providing a street kid in Hanoi with hospitality training. How cool is that?
It’s not too late to be involved. Doodles are being accepted until the end of the month. Drop of boxes are located at the following places:
- Craft Victoria
- Federation Square Atrium
- Footscray Community Arts Centre
- Lamington Drive
- Incu – Flinders Lane
- Right Angle Studio
- St Heliers Store and Gallery @ Abbotsford Convent
- Utopian Slumps
If you’re not in Melbourne (or if it’s more convenient) you can also send your doodle to Pin Up Your Doodle, c/o Utopian Slumps, 1/33 Guildford Lane, Melbourne, Australia, 3000. Don’t forget to sign it, include your contact details, and, if you’re mailing it, make sure you mark the envelope ‘please do not fold’.
Happy doodling dudes!
