ArtAngels Benefit Auction
About the Session

ArtAngels is an annual charity art auction for the benefit of Click Learning, an NGO that uses technology to set learners in no-fee primary schools on track with the foundational literacy, numeracy and digital skills they need to build sustainable livelihoods in the future.  In addition, the auction invests back into the arts through the Blessing Ngobeni Art Prize and the ArtAngels Everard Read Bursary at Ruth Prowse School of Art. This event relies on the generosity of our sponsors, renowned local artists and participants, each of whom support Click Learning’s ultimate vision, the arts and a better future for South Africa. Strauss & Co supports this important initiative by waiving all commissions.

Tickets for the live event are now sold out. The auction will be live streamed. To browse, register and bid online click here.
