New Dawn Guatemala Events
When: Saturday, August 26th, 7-9 pm
Where: The ArtXchange Gallery 512 1st Ave S, Seattle, WA 98104
New Dawn Guatemala has been hard at work editing footage for a documentary film about the heroic story and resilient people of Nuevo Amanecer, an ex-refugee community in Guatemala. We are pleased to announce that we will be premiering an extended preview of the film at an upcoming event later this month at the ArtXchange Gallery in Pioneer Square.
The event will also showcase artwork by talented local artists Heather Danso and Victor Fuentes, which will be on sale with proceeds directly funding scholarships for youth living in Nuevo Amanecer.
Musician Aldo Sanchez will be performing along with his daughter, Amaya. This incredibly entertaining duet has performed at previous New Dawn Guatemala events and is a must-see! New Dawn is working on securing an additional band to perform during the event.
Admission is free, however a small donation is suggested. Light refreshments will be provided. If you plan to attend please RSVP on Facebook here.
We look forward seeing you on Saturday, August 26th at the ArtXchange Gallery!
