Double Dutch and Dance 

When: Sat., Sept. 3 2011

The Eye to Eye Foundation is a local organization that aims to empower youth through academic and artistic expression. At their Double Dutch and Dance fundraiser, they’ll hark back to childhood while bringing serious issues to light, and provide an opportunity for local activists to network. “We are going to be talking and thinking about some pretty heavy topics: orphaned children, global poverty, local poverty, health problems due to lack of healthy food, etc., and we want to explore these concepts through the scope of positivity and hope,” says Fritz Stine, one of the co-directors of Eye to Eye. “Some would argue the only way to progressively explore these things is through the eyes of a child.” The benefit will premiere two art projects: Skinned Knees, a photo exhibit that explores topics like poverty as interpreted by kids, and Call & Response: International Exquisite Corpse, an art collaboration between children from North Charleston’s Jenkins Institute and kids from the Royal Seed Shelter in Ghana. There will also be drinks, Holy City Brewing Co. beer, and D’Allesandro’s pizza for sale, live screenprinting, kids games, free face and body painting, and live music from DJs JeffET and Lanatron. “Come celebrate hope, strength, and resiliency,” Stine says. “(And) come play hopscotch for the first time in five years.”
