The Other Art Fair Charity Collections
In recognition of Mental Health Awareness month and the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, we’re proud to launch Charity Collections to support charities close to our hearts, The National Council for Behavioral Health’s COVID-19 Relief Fund (USA), Campaign Against Living Miserably (UK) and Beyond Blue (Australia).
Many mental health organizations and crisis lines all over the world are experiencing an increased need for support with the compounding isolation, economic insecurity and anxiety that we are facing nationally and globally.
The Other Art Fair and our community of artists want to do our part in demonstrating our recognition of the important role these services provide. Therefore, with the generosity and support of the artists, we’re pleased to announce that we’ll be donating 100% of the proceeds from any artworks sold from these featured charity collections directly.
The National Council for Behavioral Health COVID-19 Relief Fund was created to place resources directly in the hands of community behavioral health providers who are at the frontlines, helping people with behavioral health care needs – and the providers who support them – survive these tumultuous times by providing economic relief and practical resources for them to interact with individuals remotely and, when needed, in-person. The works in this collection have been generously donated by exhibiting artists participating in the US editions of The Other Art Fair.
Beyond Blue is an Australian charity whose work recognises that anxiety, depression and suicide affect millions of people around Australia, impacting how they connect with family and friends, thrive at work, and live productive and meaningful lives. Their work is essential for millions of Australians, and we are proud to get behind such a worthy cause, with particular thanks to the artists who made this possible. The works in this collection have been generously donated by The Other Art Fair Sydney artists.
The Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) are a leading movement against suicide, and UK charity partner of The Other Art Fair. As Covid-19 has forced many more people into isolation, loneliness and anxiety, CALM are experiencing record surges in the demand for their helpline. Each week they receive thousands of calls from people in need of help and support during this time. The works in this collection have been generously donated by The Other Art Fair London artists.
