So what is this event?
It's a public art project led by New York based artist Yazmany Arboleda along with a team of Afghani artists designed to gift 10,000 pink ballons to Kabul locals. Arboleda's work has been featured in WWD, ABC, Huffington Post and he was recently selected as one of the GOOD 100. He's brought his balloon project to Bangalore, Nairobi and Yamaguchi, but this is the first time that anyone in the world can take part.
So what happens Monday evening?
You get to participate in this awesome global art project with the 10,000 Balloons Pop up at Ludlow Studios. We'll write and sign personal messages for Kabul, snap portraits of each other and take over an entire swath of the WeBelieveinBalloons.com mural. Secure your spot at the pop up, balloons to share with friends and a place in the cultural city of a history. 10,000 Balloons is presented by Imagination in Space, Ludlow Studios, House of Horology, Streetwater and Paul Zepeda.
For $10 you get to participate and receive seven free balloons, so grab your tickets here: http://10000balloons.splashthat.com/
