31 Days In…. Wellington

Linking art – with music – with food rescue is not commonly done, but if it can be done anywhere – it’s Wellington. We recently caught up with Tim and Zoe from 31 Days In¬†who told us all about the third outing for their 31 Days In project which creates art for each of 31 days in a city somewhere in the world. This time they went a step further, sourcing local musicians and bands to submit a track which gets paired to their art for that day. They’re selling the tracks and all proceeds go to Kaibosh.

Listen below to hear all about the project:
