Milk and Honey
Posted May 15, 2012on:
This past weekend I went to Milk and Honey Showcase. This was the second year they were running it. I really wanted to go last year, but it was all the way in TableView (I’m such a Cape Tonian…) and this was pre-myciti bus days. Anyway, this year it was held at the Bree Street Studios in town. Awesome venue. The view of table mountain and Cape Town…amaze! And people actually work there…like that’s their daily view…wow!
Anyway, the showcase was super awesome. There was artwork being sold, there was a clothing label re-launch (remember hope is my hero, I wrote about them sometime ago…yes), there was live music, and there was even a live theatre production. Yes, it was awesome!
The best part is, entrance fee was only R30…and as Milk and Honey is a non-profit initiative, all the proceeds from the evening went to AlephSurf, an organisation that aims to “restore through recreation”. Basically they use art and surfing as a means to restore hope for disadvantaged youth. I think they’re based in Jeffrey’s Bay, hence the surfing… Anyway, do check them out.
So, a total of R9,300 was raised on the evening for AlephSurf. AMAZE! Yay for people doing stuff, hey!
I’m inspired. I’m filled with all kinds of awe and love.
