On Wednesday, May 29, 2013, Art-Blanche launched their initiative called “The Innocence Project” with the Grand Africa Foundation. Art-Blanche is the mother- daughter duo, Anett Visser and Lisa Jooste, who focused their artwork on the children of the world, to promote a better education and living conditions. It has been an emotional journey for the artists in painting these children as they got face to face with a very distant reality every day, but as these children became their vision, they became the children’s’ voices. A percentage of proceeds for each painting sold were donated to The Grand Africa Foundation. The MC’s for the evening was the creative Aidan Whytock and the always stunning Natalie Becker. Both Natalie and Aidan is renowned for getting involved in heartfelt awareness initiatives and the Art-Blanche team was excited to have them on board and represent the project in a good stead. The evening saw Miss Earth SA Cape Town regional finalists along with the art enthusiasts serenaded by scholars from The Outline Dance Company with a routine called “Now We Are Free – ANOL SHALOM”. Guests were treated to The Grand Café and Beach signature pizza canapés and welcome drinks by Holden Manz Wine Estate. Artist, Lisa Jooste says “My mom and I are excited to see the support that our community has for us. We are thrilled to have seen that our paintings that depict children from the remote tribal villages in the Himalayas, Nepal, Tibet, India, Syria and to Afghanistan connected well with the evenings guests”. The artwork will be showcased at The Grand Africa Café and Beach – thereafter for viewing the public may contact Lisa Jooste via email at lisajooste@yahoo.com .
