About the event

A unique 'pop-up' art exhibition will be appearing at Christie's in South Kensington for a week only towards the end of July. Representing artworks drawn by artists from up to 10 of London's homeless charities, it provides an opportunity to showcase the hidden talents and creativities of this group of artists, which are often forgotten and over-looked.

Thanks to the generosity of Christie's, the world’s leading art business, this pop-up exhibition also offers a chance to raise public awareness of some of the amazing artworks created by homeless people as part of their path to recovery programmes run by London's homeless charities. The drawings on show represent just a small proportion of the vast amount of artworks currently on display to the general public at a number of Cafes around London, through Cafe Art, a new community arts project launched this year for homeless people.

Details of participating Cafes and charities involved in this new art initiative can be found on the website.
