French Fry Factory
FEAR WILL NOT SILENCE US!!!
On June 26th, Not In Our Name will be presenting an art show fundraiser to raise money to send people to the protests at the Republican National Convention in New York City, which is being held August 29th through September 2nd. The theme of the show is ANTI-MILITARISM. We need representatives of FASHION (fashion show), VIDEO/FILM(three walls of film), MUSIC, POSTER ART (whole wall of poster art), PHOTOGRAPHY, PERFORMANCE and anything else that you feel could represent this message well.
The exhibition will be at a new venue called the French Fry Factory. It'a huge two story warehouse space in downtown oakland.The address is 278 4th St Oakland, CA 94607-4332. It's a one night event.
We will be placing the artists name with each peice, and will be handing out a program containing the artists name and contact info, so if people like their work they can contact the artist to see more. We're leaving it up to the artist what percentage of the sale (from 0%-100%) they would like to donate to the cause. Of course art donations are definitely welcome.
Please contact N.I.O.N. at email@example.com with the subject "Art Show". You can also call the N.I.O.N. office at (510)-601-8000, and ask for Jasmine.
Send your response as soon as possible with a number we can reach you at.

Not In Our Name Office: 3945 Opal St. Oakland CA
The deadline for entering your art will be from May 31st to June 10th.
