Christie’s is proud to present a charity auction to benefit The Hope Project, which is founded on the principles of dignity, compassion and safety for all.

The charity aims to provide aid and support for people in need. Their primary focus is people fleeing conflict or facing injustice, poverty or persecution. They focus on the empowerment of people, primarily refugees, by creating and supporting projects that allow them to help themselves and others.

The Hope Project Arts is a safe place for refugees to express themselves through art, theatre, poetry, music, dance and so much more, while teaching others new skills and promoting a sense of community and understanding.

The Hope Project’s overriding focus is the mental health of refugees on Lesvos. The artworks exhibited here were all created by refugees in The Hope Project art studio, many of whom are still living on the island.

The sale will take place in London on 13 January 2020 at 7:15 pm Christie’s, King Street, St. James's, London SW1Y 6QT
