Brighton launch for global charity art
7:30am Wednesday 14th August 2013 in News
A GLOBAL community art project will begin in Brighton.
The UNICEF project aims to bring communities together through painting murals.
The first step will be the creation of a mural on a building in Brighton made up of only black lines. The United Nations Children’s Fund project will then engage communities in 25 different countries around the world, including in South America, Central America, Australasia and Asia.
Finally the outline mural will be completed during the Brighton Festival in May 2015.
The projects creator is Daniel Doherty who is based in Brighton.
He said: “Although I have been making and selling art- work for the past ten years I do not believe that this is really what art is about.
I believe it is about people – art can change lives and I believe this is art’s most powerful quality.
“I have been involved in many different community- based art projects in London. I have travelled to many different countries.
“My philosophy is to change lives through art projects.”
Unicef will receive all of the charity donations from the project, which will start in Brighton in November.
