The CreateArt4Hope Campaign has been organised by The Visual Artists Association as a response to the COVID-19 crisis. Thousands of Artists have come together to share their artwork across social media platforms, to create art that raises hope and highlights beauty in these uncertain times.
Maggie’s Merseyside offers a free ‘more than medicine’ service for people living with cancer, as well as their family and friends. With emotional support through group and one-to-one counselling sessions being one of their key initiatives. The funds raised from this new collection will support the ‘Million for Maggie’s’ campaign, galvanising support across the region to ensure that everyone living with cancer is able to access the psychological and expert support they need to have the best quality of life possible.
Profits of donations from the first #CreateArt4Hope collection were given to local charity
As a thank you to those who supported the fund, a limited edition CURATED collection of luxurious artwork was sent to donators.
