awareness of problems we ignore every day. We are here
positivity, and give that little lift to those who need it most.
We at Uplift have been bringing together the creative students and proffessionals of London to run art and design workshops for one of the most renowned homeless charities in the UK. During these workshops, clients of Crisisâ€™s education and training centers, Skylight, have been collaborating with designers to create a series of proffessionally produced posters. These workshops have allowed the clients to develop their creativity and broaden their mind. Being out on the street destroys motivation, leaving people with a hopeless and negative outlook on life. The aim of these workshops were to bring back the motivation, and bring back positivity.
On the 8th of February 2014, we are exited to announce we will be holding an exhibition and auction for this work. All the profit from this day will be donated to Crisis, in aid of helping support the amazing things they do for those who are not as fortunate as ourselves. Come down, to take an exclusive look at what everyone has been up to, get the chance to purchace some beautifully crafted posters themed on positivity, and help us to give those who need it, that little lift in life.
