Charity Exhibition & Auction

  • Core & Nolia's Gallery 60 Great Suffolk Street London, England, SE1 0BL United Kingdom (map)

We are hugely excited to announce a very special evening on Monday 9th November at the Core @ Nolias Gallery in Southwark.

One of our first redevelopment projects on the ground in Nepal involved creative art lessons for children affected by the earthquakes. The results are beautiful, expressive and endearing self-portraits, and we have 30 original pieces to be exhibited for auction. 

The money raised will go back into redevelopment work in the same region. Three of NERF's four trustees will be visiting Nepal again in mid-November to monitor our ongoing projects and look for new opportunities in which to invest these additional funds.

The exhibition will open at 7pm with a free drinks reception until 7.30pm, after which a bar will be running with a voluntary contribution per drink. Save the date and we hope to see you all there!

The child artists are all from the Sindhupalchowk District of Nepal, where 97% of schools were destroyed in the recent earthquakes. All the children created two artworks - one to keep for themselves and another to be auctioned.

In addition to the artwork there is a photograph of the child who created each piece, along with their name, age and other personal details in order to ensure the longevity of the connection between the artist and the art. The exhibition will also feature a display of original photography from post-earthquake Nepal.
