We would like this event to not only be fun, but also to support parts of our community whose participation on the celebrations of the day-to-day life might be complicated or even disadvantaged. We have approached an amazing charity Artbox working with artists with learning disabilities.
Artbox works …’to support talented artists with learning disabilities to create high quality, contemporary art work whilst developing their life skills and confidence, in an inspiring, fun and friendly environment. In doing this, we hope to give artists with learning disabilities a voice and another means to communicate.’ http://www.artboxlondon.org/about-us/
We find art a great catalyst for raising awareness and creating a place of generosity. We desire that art becomes a ‘language’ that operates beyond stereotypes and hierarchies and heals through joy and pleasure.
All money from the art pieces auctioned will be used for this purpose. Please, do come to spend your money on an original that is nowhere else to be found. For artists auctioning, please, look up the ‘artists’ section.
The International Women’s day should be a reason to celebrate for everyone! Reach out and rejoice with others!
