WeMake- Put A Bird In It!

WeMake Design in Action: Put A Bird In It
WeMake is seeking artists, designers, architects, builders and makers of all sorts to help us raise money for All Hands Raised, First Octave—a grant program that funds art and music education for the underserved and underrepresented students and schools, in Portland and Multnomah County.

“ Put A Bird In It ”
With the help of industrial design firm NEWWoodcrafters, and ADX we’ve created a modern birdhouse template as the canvas for your artful explorations. Were picking a total of 75-100 artists and or teams to participate in the project with a silent auction to be held on October 12th, 2012 at Union Pine.

NOTE: Although we did create the template so the birdhouses could be put together three different ways with glue! (made for wood of course and supplied!) You are certainly more than welcome to add to them, take away and build in any way you wish. 

The night promises to be one to remember! Our October sketchXchange 
guest illustrator is no other than Aaron Draplin and will take place at Union Pine before the auction begins. We are pleased to be a partner in Portland Design Week, Yay!
Anyone and everyone is welcomed to submit. Just download the pdf to find out more!


Feel free to share this with all of your maker, designer buddies!

Agencies, studios and teams welcome!
