My Own Two Hands, Sisters Folk Festival's (SFF) annual art auction and fundraiser, plays an integral role in the creative lives of children in Sisters. Funds raised at the auction held in May support music programs and instruction; world-class musicians hosting workshops for youth; materials and supplies for art classes and scholarships to music and arts experiences for youth.

All of that is made possible by the generosity of donating artists.

Last year the community raised over $100,000 for SFF programs.

In a statement, SFF said, "The 2019 theme 'We All Belong' exemplifies the sense of community we work to engender and support through the music and arts programs of Sisters Folk Festival."

The Sisters Folk Festival is extending an invitation for artists to create a themed item and donate a piece of artwork for the auction. The 2019 deadline for submitting donations is Friday, March 15. The Sisters Folk Festival will announce detailed entry information in January and make it available at www.sistersfolkfestival.org.
