The PCO has been proud to be involved with the ‘Raise Three Fingers’ for Myanmar campaign. Members have been drawing the three fingers salute which is a symbol of protest in the region (originally from ‘The Hunger Games’ believe it or not) and donating artwork to be sold for the cause. We also ran a ‘draw three fingers’ workshop at the recent campaign fundraiser creating an instant gallery.
The day featured live music (from the London Mozart Players to Laura Marling), stand up comedy, craft stores and fabulous Burmese food. Plus some very moving speeches from some of the campaigners.
Over £40,000 so far has been raised from the fundraiser.
Here is a short film about the day on the PCO YouTube channel made by the Surreal McCoy.
Thanks to all who contributed, we hope to have a related exhibition later in the year.
