In February this year Brisbane “Tweeps”, along with thousands of other users of online social media community Twitter, from over 200 cities around the world, came together to help raise over $390,000 AU for Charity:Water. Following the success of the International event, September 10-13th 2009, now marks the dates set for Twestival Local, where Twitter communities will be holding events to support their local causes.
On September 11th 2009, Brisbane Twestival will be helping to raise funds for the Inspire Foundation, who through a number of programs, support young people through the prevention of youth suicide and improvement of mental health and well being. Twestival will be held at Joshua Levi Galleries, a great supporter of local artists and musicians, where I have showed my work before. The night will showcase local bands and acts, raffles and also an art auction to which I am donating one of my framed photographs (above + below). So please come along, have a few drinks, listen to some great bands, buy some artwork and help support the Inspire Foundation!
