A unique art event, featuring a competition, exhibit and auction, created to catalyze social enterprises in Africa.A unique event where over 500 influencers in design and construction discover how architecture combined with social enterprise can solve poverty problems in Africa.

Process
RISE invites artists, designers and architects to create a piece of art to represent one block of Manhattan.  This unique opportunity is open to the first 100 to sign up; finished artwork due by September 30.

All these incredible artworks will be exhibited and available for purchase through an exclusive auction at rise in the city.

A high profile jury will shortlist the 10 best pieces and the overall winner will be announced at the event.

100% of proceeds will go directly to the project because BOND Events underwrites rise’s operating expenses.

By getting involved with rise in the city, either by creating a work of art, sponsoring one of the city blocks or event packages or attending, you will help give the people of Lesotho the opportunity to better their lives for themselves.

Details for participation at the Rise in the City Event page.
