Shortly after his unexpected alignment with the #WithSyria campaign, BNE.org has announced that Banksy has also joined their “Artists 4 Water” international art project. The project works to “raise awareness and funds to help solve the world water crisis.”
Funds will be raised for charity: water, a New York based non-profit Organization that works every day to reinvent charity while bringing clean drinking water to the 800 million people living without. The Artists 4 Water, charity: water campaign will run until June 11, and will feature more artists as it progresses. Original artwork from Shepard Fairey will also be available on the World Water Day launch (image below). According to some sources the Banksy drop is scheduled for March 22 at 12 Noon PST and the artwork won’t be revealed until then.
There will also be BNE x Banksy gifts given away via social media. For more information, check out the BNE Instagram page and check the site at the given time.
