Brand Agency Truly Deeply Wears Their Art with Heart on Their Sleeve.
Each year at Truly Deeply we run a wonderful art show we call ‘Art with Heart’. We choose a deserving local charity, get busy painting with our friends and creative community and put on a night with all the bells and whistles to sell the artwork through blind auction. Last night was our 13th Art with Heart and it was a boomer – Our best collection of art yet, our biggest crowd and an even bigger buzz as 220 people crowded into our studio space to enjoy the art, the company and a few drinks to-boot.
This year we are raising funds to support e.motion21. Founded in 2009, e.motion21 is a not for profit, volunteer driven organisation delivering an Australian-first, high quality dance and fitness program for children and young adults with Down syndrome. Their first location started in Kew with just six students and has now spread to 180 students across six locations throughout Victoria. Their vision is to enhance lives and change perceptions of Down syndrome in our society, and eventually have locations Australia wide.
The money we raise will help pay the way for more young people with Down Syndrome to take part in e.motion21’s dance and movement program. Families pay $500 a year but the program costs $3,500 per participant. With the help of our friends and clients we hope to raise enough money to cover the program for another 10 kids for the next year.
A big shout-out also to our sponsors and supporters who make the whole event a success, including:
STAPLES event hire
The Railway Club Hotel – Port Melbourne
Loft House in the Adelaide Hills
Avia Aviation Flight Simulator
And of course, all our artists
Thanks from e.motion21.
THANK YOU for supporting Truly Deeply’s Art with Heart exhibition which raised funds this year to support the work of e.motion21.
With your generous support, we will continue to improve the life choices, employment opportunities, health and wellbeing of young people with Down syndrome and to respond to the significant demand for our specialised program.
