On October 10, YAP joined forces with adidas and Estria Invitational Graffiti Battle to sponsor 25 of the best Graffiti artists to come to Oakland to compete and to raise awareness and support for youth in Oakland. Our effort will provide opportunities for local communities to invite and to support underprivileged youth to participate in classes in order to improve their social and verbal skills.
These classes are offered through endless efforts of Youthspeaks.org. YAP is working with Estria for an event in San Francisco on October 31 at Shoebiz to auction 25 adidas shoes painted by these artists and to have a live painting event while you can purchase an adidas and have it painted by an artist of your choice. All proceeds from the auction and painted shoes will be donated to Youthspeaks.org and to an orphanage in Africa through YAP such as the Huruko Childrens' Centre.
I have included a few images of painted shoes and murals.
DO NOT MISS TO ATTEND 10/31 EVENT AT 1420 HAIGHT STREET, SAN FRANCISCO. FOR MORE INFORMATION, LOG IN TO www.shoebizsf.com.
