Manifesto

Arts For Refugees stand for the dignity and self-empowerment of refugees.

Arts for Refugees story

We support up and coming artists build their brands as artists. Our art auctions allow artists build exposure and earn a living. Artists also receive 50% of the sale price (minus platform costs). Profits from these auctions go to transforming refugees into entrepreneurs in the developing world.

Each £1,000 of the profits from these art auctions will transform 3-5 refugees into successful entrepreneurs using solar lamps based micro businesses in rural Uganda.

They will receive training, inventory and Business Mentoring to set up a successful micro business using a tried and tested system delivered by WSV Global.

These micro-businesses will also support their local communities in the developing world to meet their UN Sustainable Development Goals as well.

 

This digital art auction is being organized by:

  • Hercules Fisherman – organizer of arts4grenfell
  • BizGees – Award-winning concept from UNICEF FinTech Jam for Good 2016

artFix supports the initiative and will be organizing a workshop in May that will be engaging the participating artists and audiences. Stay tuned!
