Worthing Churches Homeless Projects are exhibiting at Colonnade House this year as part of the Worthing Artists Open Houses. This year our project centres on Safe Spaces!
‘Where is your safe space? Is it somewhere you physically go or can go? Is it somewhere you visit in your mind? Is your space safe depending on who you are with, what you are doing?
We are asking our people who have experienced homelessness and people who have never experienced homelessness to tell us what their ‘safe space’ is and we will give this description to a local artist. The artist can then create a visual representation!
We ask the artist to produce the artwork and donate it to the charity so that we may auction the portraits off to raise money from the event to support the invaluable work that WCHP do in our community. We rely heavily on the income raised from events like this so really appreciate your support creating pieces of art to help us raise funds and awareness.’
I was wondering if you would be able to share the information about our project with your art group in case any of your members (or you yourself!) would be interested in taking part. The deadline for artworks is middle to end of May.
