HOME IS WHERE THE ART IS

£435 of £37,500 goal

Raised by 9 people in 21 days

The Sir Hubert von Herkomer Arts Foundation is a charity inspiring a generation of young people by offering them a gateway to the arts. 

It is vital that we have a space to offer to the children in deprived areas of the city to ensure our work with them is followed up and they are inspired and supported to be creative, keeping them away from a life of potential violence, crime and gangs.

By funding after-school, weekend and holiday classes and workshops, we provide children with the inspiration and tools to develop lifelong artistic passions.

We have been supporting over 200 young people this summer at our POP UP Gallery/Studio, in Gospel Oak area of London, providing children with arts, music and photography workshops. We were highly commended for our exciting and motivating workshops by the Mayor of Camden Jenny Headlam-Wells and Keir Starmer Labour MP who came to visit the gallery in July.

We were also featured in an article in the Guardian newspaper, Long Hot Summer: How Kids Can Stay Safe from Gangs and the Camden New Journal as well as the Ham and High.

The space we have been using was donated free by Camden Council, which we have now had to vacate. We urgently need to raise funds for a permanent home for the Foundation so we can continue our crucial work with the young people in this area of London, providing them with a safe place to go after school, weekends and school holidays.

We are temporarily housed at LSM sharing a space as you may already be aware of but this is a shared space limiting us to numbers, so until the first of March we will be housed here while we look for a permanent space of our own and this is why we are fundraising.

Please share this link with all your friends and family and the community of Queens Crescent. Any donation counts and we will be hugely grateful for.

We need to raise these funds as soon as possible. The funds will go to find a building to house our projects for the young people to continue their workshops in the ARTS.

We have been supporting over 200 young people this Summer at our POP UP Gallery/Studio providing children with arts, music and photography workshops.

The space we have been using was donated by Camden BUT no longer can they provide us with free space so we need to RAISE FUNDS so that we can continue our crucial work with the young people in this area of London providing them with a safe place to go after school, weekends and school holidays. It is vital that we have a SPACE to work with our young people in London to ensure our work with the youth in this area is followed up and they are supported, keeping them away from a life of crime and gangs.

I am Debbi Clark CEO and Founder of Sir Hubert von Herkomer Arts Foundation and I will be working directly with this project and the youth in London we support.

How it Works
  1. You are donating to PayPal Giving Fund UK, a registered charity (No. 1110538), which will email you a receipt for your donation and claim Gift Aid where eligible.
  2. GoFundMe’s platform is free. The charity will typically receive the funds from PayPal Giving Fund within 15-45 days of your donation if the charity has enrolled (or 90 days if the charity has not yet enrolled). Unlike other platforms, 100% of any Gift Aid will go to the charity as well.
* In very limited cases, a recommended charity may cease to meet PayPal Giving Fund's legal or other eligibility requirements. In such cases, PayPal Giving Fund will reassign the funds to a similar charity, and (wherever possible) seek a new recommendation from donors.
