SRAM pART Project - 22 ways to pARTicipate
One hundred SRAM bike parts - turned into art - turned into bikes. That’s the simply creative formula for the pART Project Velo Village, an art auction to support World Bicycle Relief’s (WBR) efforts of sustainability in South Africa.
22 gifted artists will auction off their bike part creations in Salt Spring Island, BC, during the Velo Village island pathways celebration of cycling, June 21-23. The auction will take place live onsite as well as in real time at http://www.sram.com/partproject/velo-village/art.php. Funds raised will go directly to WBR, who has delivered more than 100,000 bicycles to students, healthcare workers, and entrepreneurs in Asia and across Africa.
Artists making art from parts coming together to empower people.
