I am Nepal (Rogue Space Chelsea - 508 West 26th Street) 


In support of the children affected by the earthquake that shook Nepal last April, Rogue Space Chelsea is hosting their 7th of the Rogue Foundation's benefits for children in need through art. 

The Rogue Foundation gives art supplies to children in war-torn or disaster hit areas, giving them a space to express themselves with the hopes that the art will aide in the healing process. 


I Am Nepal features art was created by the Mother and Children Art Foundation in Kathmandu, and Artudio in the Dolackha region. 100% of the proceeds from the event, including from the purchase of the art, will be donated to the children to support their educations. 

It's a free event, but go ahead and RSVP right here.
