With the help of over 40 artists we were able to make the second Cardboard Shelter event a fantastic success. With 57 pieces available for purchase, a staggering 37 were sold on the night and £2,000 raised for Crisis.
A great big thank you to all contributing artists and all of those who made a purchase on the night, along with everyone who helped out with promotion and making the event possible, thank you!
There are photos of all of the pieces that were displayed on the night on our Flickr. Unfortunately we didn't get any good photos of the night and the only ones we have are below.
In 2008 we invited 30 artists to each produce a piece of work on an A4-sized piece of cardboard. The collection was then displayed in an exhibition at The Artworks Galleries in Newcastle, and pieces were available for purchase at £40 each. £1,120 was raised for The Big Issue Foundation. Visit our Flickr for more photos.
The remaining pieces have now been donated to The Crisis Skylight Cafe in Newcastle where they are currently available for purchase.
