In Summer 2019, Aegean Solidarity Network Team UK (ASN Team UK) entered into an exciting collaboration with Sussex Prairie Garden, a beautifully landscaped garden in the heart of the Sussex Weald. The team at Sussex Prairie Garden are committed to showcasing beautiful art and plants within their garden paradise.
So it seemed like the perfect match for them to join forces with ASN Team UK to support the Love Without Borders art project based in Athens. Love Without Borders aims to provide people from the refugee community with a source of emotional expression and economic self empowerment, and helps to fund emergency requirements.
In 2020 the team at Sussex Prairie Garden will be raising money through ASN Team UK to fund art workshops with Love Without Borders for children from the refugee community in Athens. Inspired by the colours, textures and plant forms- we plan for the children and professional artists to create their own masterpieces which will then be exhibited in the garden in 2020 as part of a dynamic art exhibition.
The exhibition will focus on individuals and their stories and look to raise awareness of the plight of so many people like us, who just by circumstance have ended up in such dire conditions.
The gardens and exhibition are open from the 1st June 2020. Get a sneak preview by clicking HERE.
The money raised will be used to fund the workshops in Athens, including provisions of art materials, a healthy and nutritious meal, and also help provide the families involved with some basic food supplies.
