About

Hadley, Rasilia, and Nuriasani are creating an arts education program for street children (largely orphans and homeless) in Palambang, Indonesia.  The paintings will be sold at physical and online auctions, with 100% of the revenues given back to the children to supplement their income and help their survival.  This venture provides a safe space for the children over the weekend, extra income, and a positive cultural experience to take the children out of the harsh realities of the street, even if only for a few hours.
