Gender Odyssey operates on a very streamlined budget. This has allowed Gender Odyssey to continue and grow even during the hardest economic times. Now, we are challenged by our own growth — the rapid expansion of Trans*, family, and professional programming that many say is the best in the country. We need to hire a conference director!
We are excited to launch our fundraising campaign in support of the 2014 Gender Odyssey conferences with a DOLLAR for-DOLLAR match from an anonymous donor!
Our goal is to raise $10,000 in donations, which then will be DOUBLED by the donor. The fundraising campaign will end as soon as we reach this goal or by November 30th, whichever comes first. If the $10,000 goal is reached by midnight of November 16, our anonymous donor will add an extra $1,000!
Brazilian artist Henrique Oliveira’s powerful recycled wood art installations snake through their exhibition spaces like massive living trees that burst out of walls and through ceilings. Oliveira scours the streets of Sao Paulo to gather plywood, which he then separates into layers and combines to create his massive “tridimensionals” sculptures. The stunning mixed media pieces are a combination of sculpture, painting and architecture.
