Orah Moore’s March Art Marathon

Participant: Orah Moore

Mission: Each day I will be thinking about what it means to be seeking a new home in a new land. I will create a week by week practice that includes photography and haiku, some days I’ll send you a photo and some days a haiku. I will incorporate drawing with the photos so by the end of each week I create a culminating piece for that week.

If you sponsor my March art practice you will get an email from me daily, observing my evolution through the month. Think about what it might mean to you to seek a new home. Wouldn’t you like the support both financially and emotionally to resettle? This is an interesting fund raiser “marathon”. I commit to daily art creation and you commit to donating to Central Vermont Refugee Action Network and observing my art practice

March Arts Marathon is a fundraiser for Asylum Seekers Assistance Network (ASAN), a project of CVRAN. The work of ASAN is to get asylum seekers out of detention and resettled in Central Vermont. We are already supporting a family of four and plan to take in other asylum seekers this year. Our goal is to raise $15,000 for legal bonds, living expenses, and lawyers’ fees. March Arts Marathon is a community effort: Every day in March, poets and writers and artists and photographers will each send a piece of work to friends and family. And friends and family will donate to support this work. Together we will be helping to welcome new Americans who in turn will add immeasurably to our own communities.
