A Trainer Art Auction for Raukatauri Music Therapy Centre
One Percent Collective, a notforprofit charity that makes it easy for people to donate 1% of their income to charity, is collaborating with W1 to launch a very unique art project with proceeds going direct to charity.
‘Safe in Sound’ sets the finest Kiwi artists, graphic designers, tattooists and graffiti writers loose on the complicated canvas of a pair of white Nike Air Force 1 trainers. Each artist will paint a pair of trainers with their own bespoke artwork and for the month of August, Aucklanders can admire the footwear flair on display in Japanese Bar, Fukuko, and the Nike Britomart store.
Artists include Otiz Frizell, Billy Apple + Inhouse Design, Dean and Dan Sacred of Sacred Tattoo, Rainbow Monkey, Component & Trust Me of Cut Collective, Owen Dippie, Melissa Sharplin and Elliot Stewart.
The shoes will be auctioned off at the end of August with money raised going to Raukatauri Music Therapy Centre, New Zealand’s only music therapy centre that works with children and young people with a wide range of special needs, including physical, intellectual, mental, developmental and behavioural.
Fukuko will host the launch party for the artists, friends and lucky fans and an auction will be held at the end of August for the public to bid on each pair of Nike trainers.
