Obus x Create Impact Art Auction

Coinciding with our OLANA X OBUS collaboration,-- we are raising funds for CREATE IMPACT –-- an Australian-based not-for-profit organisation --that provides education, clean water and health care to remote communities in Ethiopia.

Together with six talented Australian artists, we’re aiming to raise $1O,OOO in 7 days to help Create Impact build a school in the rural town of Medagi, in the northern highlands of Ethiopia.
In Australia, we often take the quality of our schools and education for granted. Learning about Olana’s childhood in Ethiopia and Create Impact’s projects in the region has made us passionate advocates of their work.
Enjoy this rare opportunity to own an original contemporary artwork with 100% of funds raised donated to CREATE IMPACT.
