A Maze of Story (AMoS) is a Perth-based not-for-profit organisation that provides a program of creative writing for children. The program is currently being delivered as workshops in selected primary schools.
The major fundraising event for A Maze of Story for 2016 is an art auction, to be held on 9 October 2016 at the Centre for Stories, 100 Aberdeen Street, Northbridge, commencing at 4 pm.
You are invited to come along and see the artworks, hear the stories, meet committee members and other guests, and perhaps even buy a piece of art. Here is your invitation.
A number of leading Perth artists have generously donated artwork for the auction: Jenny John, Camilla Loveridge, Anne McCaughey, John Olsen, Leon Pericles, and Di Taylor.
In addition, seven senior schools will be contributing student works to be auctioned. Each school will be presenting works related to a particular story that has been selected from one of the anthologies of children’s writing produced since we started the A Maze of Story program. Two selected works from each school will be presented for auction.
In total, 36 wonderful artworks are to be auctioned, some via silent auction.
Several of the stories will be narrated on the day by experienced storytellers, and there will be the opportunity to meet some of the artists and children who wrote the stories as well as the board and committee members of A Maze of Story.
Wine and cheese will be served.
The artwork can be viewed online from 29 September 2016.
