CALIFORNIA, OKLAHOMA! From Nov. 7 - Dec. 15, 2016, please join us in the 2016 Afrikanation Art Supply Donation Drive!

Afrikanation Artists Organization USA (AAOU) in partnership with Local Community Organizers (LCO's), are collecting new to lightly used art supplies in support of youth at Hargeisa Children’s Orphanage and professional artists in Hargeisa, Somaliland/Somalia through Dec. 15, 2016. Due to high price and proximity, art supplies are virtually unavailable in this region and we need your help.

LCO's in California and Oklahoma are hosting Official Art Supply DROP ZONES inside of offices, galleries, educational facilities and a variety of business. At these locations you will find a box marked "Official Art Supply Drop Zone" on the front and a sign-in sheet. Please sign in for more information about AAOU or if you have dropped off supplies so that we may reach back out and share how your donations have been used once they are delivered.
