'ART On The Mind': Leading contemporary artists donate work to help homeless charity

LONDON.- Leading Contemporary artists including; Sir Anish Kapoor, Sir Antony Gormley, Chris Levine, Jeremy Deller, Ian Davenport, Julie Verhoeven, Kristjana S Williams, Harland Miller, Patrick Hughes, Ann-Marie James and Meredith Ostrom have generously donated work to the 2nd ‘ART on the Mind’ exhibition, which will raise funds for UK homeless charity Cardboard Citizens.

Art on the Mind brings together Art World A-listers for an exhibition & auction in aid of Cardboard Citizens, a charity that specialises in using the arts to help people affected by homelessness. All of the contributing artists have kindly donated work to support the campaign.

The exhibition is on public view until Saturday 15th June at Proud Central Gallery in London, and people can bid on the auction at Paddle 8 until June 19th.

Adrian Jackson MBE, Founder of Cardboard Citizens commented: "Our year-round workshop programme brings together people experiencing homelessness and housing instability to participate in the performing arts to be part of a supportive community, with opportunities for personal development, self-expression and professional training. With ever-greater need in the UK, we're delighted that the visual artists that have so generously donated to this exhibition and auction have felt a sense of solidarity with our work and our Members. This year's Art on the Mind celebrates that solidarity through an eclectic and fascinating collection of pieces. We invite viewers and bidders to be part of our community, changing lives, together."

Kate Winslet, CBE, Patron of Cardboard Citizens added: “I have been Cardboard Citizens’ patron for more than 10 years and in that time I have witnessed the life-changing work they do with homeless people in London and across the country. The inaugural Art on the Mind was a huge success, helping the charity to carry out their vital work. Homelessness continues to grow, so I hope as many people as possible will support this year’s auction, which features a superb collection of artists, so Cardboard Citizens can continue that work.“

As resources are increasingly stretched, Art on the Mind will play a vital part in supporting and expanding Cardboard Citizens’ much needed work, and will help champion the value of the arts as catalyst for change and personal growth.

Contributing artists; Abigail Bowen, Alan Fears, Alan Newnham, Andy Burgess, Andy Lovell, Angela Robinson, Ann Gardner, Ann-Marie James, Beatrice Brown, Carne Griffiths, Carrie Reichardt, Cathie Pilkington, Charlie Calder-Potts, Charlotte Keates, Charming Baker, Chris Levine, Chris Marshall, Christine Percy, Dan Pears, Dave Allen, Dean Hughes.

The charity hopes the event will raise awareness of its work, and proceeds will be invested directly into its programme of workshops focusing on education, skill development and creative expression, and information, advice and guidance for those currently experiencing homelessness.

Ian Davenport, contributing artist, said: “When I was contacted by Cardboard Citizens about donating a piece of work, I knew I wanted to be involved in the project right away. I have become more aware the increasing number of homeless people in the UK, and Art on the Mind is an important event that will help with the mental health issues raised by this awful situation. Anything that can be done to provide support to enable people to move away from homelessness is a very positive step.”

For 28 years, the charity has used the arts to help people with experience of homelessness in London and nationwide. From those exposed and living on the street to those less visible, but still very vulnerable, individuals and families living in insecure and temporary accommodation, numbers continue to rise.

At least 320,000 people are homeless in Britain – a year-on year increase of four percent since 2017 - and figures in London have skyrocketed, with Newham ranked as England’s number one homelessness hotspot, and at least one in every 24 people in the borough in housing insecurity. Funds raised from Art on the Mind will also support a number of projects specifically targeting East London.
