"What if you could empower someone who has experienced homelessness, a disability or other adversity by helping them exhibit art they’ve created and show it to the world? What if they could earn an income by selling merchandise with their art on it, such as phone covers, tea towels, puzzles or greeting cards?
Open Canvas was created to empower disadvantaged artists and help them with these issues.
The artists we help are from a range of backgrounds. Some have lived on the street; some have experienced substance abuse and addiction; some are on low incomes within supported and crisis accommodation; and others live with mental health issues and disability. All are united in their desire to be recognised through their art."
