Life Project 4 Youth (LP4Y) has announced its first London edition of the international art initiative Together We Art: Architect of One’s Life, an exhibition and auction to benefit the charity’s work in supporting excluded young adults living in extreme poverty through entrepreneurship.
Together We Art: Architect of One’s Life, opening 15th through to 19th November invites established artists and architects sensitive to Youth empowerment to participate and donate work to be sold during the week-long exhibition at Cromwell Place.
The curated exhibition features the work of more than 17 accomplished multidisciplinary artists including Alice Anderson, Nancy Cadogan, Amélie Chabannes, Marie Maillard, Nathalie Du Pasquier, Thomas Heatherwick, Matthew Hilton, Jeremy Hutchison, JonOne, Liane Lang, Nicolas Lefeuvre, Jamie Morgan, Sven Mouton, Jemma Powell, Narinder Sagoo MBE and Emma Summerton.
LionHeart, the spoken word poet, architect and installation artist, will be in conversation with the Editorial Director of Dezeen Max Fraser, about the charity’s work. Together they will discuss how artists and architects are able to shine a light on how an environment fosters transformation, inclusivity, and encourages communities to explore, engage and connect with each other.
Works will be on display and available to bid through a private auction on 14th November, and then bidding will continue online at lp4y.org.
Max Fraser, Editorial Director commented,
The generous artwork contributions from the architecture, design and art communities makes Together We Art into an uplifting fundraising event that enables ‘Life Project 4 Youth’ to continue their essential work on equality and inclusion around the world. The charity gives young people the tools and empowerment to thrive in their communities and optimistically contribute to our collective future, actions Dezeen is proud to support.
Laure Delaporte, Founder of Life Project 4 Youth added,
When creativity becomes one of the key elements for vulnerable young people to imagine a better future, they are exposed to an infinite universe of possibilities. This is a fundamental element of LP4Y’s pedagogy, inspiring generous artists to rally behind the youth and offer their support. Together, they breathe life into dreams, transform perspectives, and create a future filled with beauty and hope.
Together We Art: Architect of One’s Life London is the fourth city to launch LP4Y’s global initiative with exhibitions also taking place in New York City, Rome and Paris.
The initiative aims to collaborate and forge together a community of artists, collectors, visitors, international organisations, entrepreneurs and businesses to showcase artists whose contributions go directly to supporting the work of Life Project 4 Youth (LP4Y).
