“Crowdfunding to break boundaries of contemporary dance and music”
My friend Ross is a musician and is involved in a new art project. They need help getting this off the ground and I thought I’d give him a hand promoting it here on HTM. Reason being, I am interested in art and if there is anything I can do to help new and worthy projects I will try and help as much as possible. Please donate, even if it’s just a fiver. London is not easy for young artists says Grayson Perry and he is right!
A couple of weeks ago I finally received through the post the much awaited book titled “Hana. A world entire.” by Hagar Cygler. I had been eagerly awaiting its release since I participated in the crowd funding project something like a year ago…
I first heard about the project on the Advanced Style blog and fell in love with it. I had to help make it happen! I have to say that I am very proud to have been part of it and I believe that this financing model is great – if there are enough people interested, things will happen.
So what is this book about? It’s about Hana, a fun loving lady from Tel Aviv, who started recording her outfits on film, many years before the internet existed and the whole world was doing it on a daily basis. Hagar Cygler, a multimedia artist also from Tel Aviv, came across these photos while perusing a flea market, purchased them and went on to try and find who this lady was. Hear it from Hagar herself:
I am in love with this book and with Hana, it’s a beautiful homage to her, and as she is no longer with us and left no family, it ensures she won’t ever be forgotten. Thank you Hagar for putting this project in motion and showing Hana to the world.
