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. The Fund will benefit the most vulnerable in terms of mental health support during the COVID-19 pandemic. Teaming with the charity, Mind, we will be helping the charity with their emergency appeal due to the Pandemic.  As a thank you for supporting the fund, all those who donate will receive a curated art collection of A3 prints kindly donated by Artists, Emma Rogers, Carne Griffiths Artist, Michael Batey and Tammy Walters Fine Art.
