PS. In order to give the exhibition a social purpose and not just an artistic one, we have also decided to contribute to the setting up of a fund entitled “All children need to dream” (UNICEF manage this fund). Arte20 has created this fund specifically for the occasion and 10% of the entire takings deriving from the sale of tickets to the exhibition will go towards it (www.childrenmustdream.org)Posted in Old Special Reports on February 11, 2003 by Tehanu
