Los Angeles, CA — On March 8, 2019, the All-Armenian Student Association will be hosting their annual “Artivism” event. Artivism is an art exhibition that blends art, music, and a cause to advocate for. The exhibition will display the work of artists from different backgrounds, but with an emphasis on Armenian culture and lifestyle. In honor of International Women’s Day, the proceeds from the event will be donated to an undecided organization that supports the protection of women’s rights in Armenia. Organizations are currently being vetting, but All-ASA is open to suggestions. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org“. Artivism allows artists in the community to blend their art and music with activism for various important causes. The cohesion of art and activism creates a welcoming environment where people can learn and contribute, all the while perusing art from up and coming artists.” said Ripsime Biyazyan, the All-ASA Chair. “Artivism has always been a highlight. Previously, the event has contributed to constructing a domestic violence shelter in Armenia and funding for arts education nonprofits in the Los Angeles area.” Currently, there is an ongoing call for artists to submit their work to be displayed. Interested artists can submit their work to the All-ASA through the following submission form before March 1st. Artists will also be allowed to sell their work. All mediums are accepted.
