I am glad to have been involved in a project for such a good cause. In terms of feedback, I would like to say that for a first time exhibition, I thought was organised and prepared well. The location chosen was good and very welcoming. Overall, I would say that it was a great experience.

What our collaborators
& artists say about us
Mr Bongo were delighted to be able to help in a very small way to provide music for the charity event. The organisers put their heart and soul into making the event such a success and we feel very humble to have worked with such caring and selfless people.
