Art Saves Lives is a not-for-profit arts organisation dedicated to providing inspirational and inclusive arts experiences to engage marginalised and underprivileged young artists in the UK. We offer our artists a plethora of multi-media visual arts, performing arts and film opportunities to unleash their artistic potential and transform their lives.
Each year, Art Saves Lives (ASL) offers its artists a rich diversity of platforms to exhibit/ perform their work and free professional training in art, sculpture, graffiti art, photography, animation, dance, drama, poetry, screenwriting, music and film. This is YOUR chance to belong to our thriving community of innovating artists. We also offer a diverse range of national and international programs where ASL artists travel throughout the UK and overseas to perform art projects at schools, hospitals, prisons and orphanages.
Each month we invite a celebrity artist to give a talk, run an ASL workshop and/ or donate a piece of their art to be publicly auctioned as a means of supporting our artists. We also encourage our artists to create original works to adorn the walls of the National Portrait Gallery, Number 10, the Houses of Parliament, the offices of public figures and multi-national corporations in order to promote our artists and the need to secure free arts experiences for future generations.
At the end of each course, our artists have an opportunity to participate in an exhibition, public performance or screening of their work. This is their chance to show friends and family exactly how far they’ve come. The best of our young artists are also offered opportunities to showcase their work on our weekly Art Saves Lives radio show on Resonance FM and via our inclusive ASL monthly events at London's hottest galleries and arts clubs. These events are free to attend for all our artists, sponsors and supporters.
