We at Distinqt, as a house of fashion, are advocates of the power of art. We believe that it is our duty to help the local creative community and highlight that the only way out of this challenging situation post COVID-19 is to work together.
During this time, the creative industry - who has heavily relied on the gig economy to sustain themselves - are now facing the threat of not being able to afford their daily needs.
Distinqt believes that the support for the creative community has been under-represented during and following the lockdown period. Our team wishes to help. For each item purchased on the Shop For A Cause page on the Distinqt website, 80% of the total proceeds will help support artistic communities through the Pineapple Lab’s Proof of Life fund.
About Pineapple Lab’s The Proof of Life Fund:
Pineapple Lab is an art organization and creative gallery space that typically houses performance and art exhibitions.
The team at Pineapple Lab launched “Proof of Life”, a virtual gallery and online auction featuring the works of local artists. All proceeds went directly to the visual artists, along with Pineapple Lab’s Artist-in-Residency Micro-Grant where local artists can apply for financial support.
Although the auction period is over, Pineapple Lab is still accepting contributions for the Artist-in-Residency Micro-Grant.
For those who wish to donate directly to the Proof of Life fund, you may contact them at email@example.com.
