Elpis Arts is a community art collaboration that was created as an off shoot of House of Paine in Marysville, WA. Watch a video about House of Paine here.
Elpis was created to provide a venue for the arts in the Marysville and the surrounding areas. It's a grassroots effort to create a platform for local artists, musicians, craftspeople and writers via networking, concerts, arts shows and internet and social media. In it's beginning stages, Elpis is gathering steam to become a locally focused force for the arts.
As such, the people of Elpis are working on a benefit concert for earthquake ravaged Haiti.
Personally I think the concert should also benefit the tranquilization and Siberian relocation of Pat Robertson. But they said that wasn't "possible". So we're sticking with helping people in Haiti.
More details about the show will be posted as they come.
In the meantime, please comment below if you are willing to be put on a volunteer list for the show or if you have any other helpful information, ideas, etc.
Helpful skills include: Photographers, graphic artists, musicians, set-up/take down and being rich. Even if you're not local, you can still help out.
