International Art Gemini Prize : Deadline extended to 12 October 2013 in order to support so many artists who had asked for an extension – prize fund of £5,000 plus chance to have your work exhibited in leading London Gallery, Rebecca Hossack Gallery.
Blackheath Halls, SE1 London is host to this year’s colourful and vital exhibition of work by children from Africa. Any work sold helps Red Earth Education, which is an amazing organisation which teaches teachers in Uganda to help make the education of 1,000s of children phenomenally better. https://www.facebook.com/events/508020712612928/
A two month long exhibit running 20TH JULY – 20TH SEPTEMBER 2013. With a celebratory private view including live music on 5TH SEMPTEMBER from Abioye & Randall www.abioyerandall.com Doors open at 6:30PM. Prices start at just £10. Anything would be a wonderful support.
Did you know there are more children under the age of 16 in Uganda than anywhere else in the world. Education is vitally important, it the best way forward in Africa, to improve lives at a young age, protect girls and encourage understanding and knowledge to help regeneration and progress in the country. Often classes have over 300 children in them. So to help the teachers in Africa cope better and be better teachers, Red Earth goes in and trains them. Professional educators themselves, Red Earth makes a difference at grass roots level. Will you help us change this?
THE COLOURS OF AFRICA – THROUGH HER CHILDREN’S EYES
If you find time while the exhibition is on, please go and support, write a comment in the book for the children to read, or if you can’t go, leave a message on their website and if you can spare a few pounds make a little donation (maybe skip that Starbucks coffee this morning and squeeze the £3 into the Red Earth pot?)
Thanks so much for your support, means a lot to hundreds of children.
The story we often receive of Africa is one of children hungry and malnourished, a place in need. This is not the only story to be told. We welcome you to a different story, one of dreams and ambition, creativity and wonder.
Help us to empower teachers and give children in Uganda the best start in life 🙂

The ArtGemini Prize is a celebration to promote international contemporary art for emerging and established artists around the world. It is an independent competition, open to all artists from anywhere in the world. There is no age limit.

In addition, artists will be supporting the charity Kids Company in London, which helps give opportunities to many of our capital’s underprivileged young and helps them through fragile formative stages of their lives.
“Our ambition is humble enough: if we succeed in bringing to international audiences even ONE artist of exceptional talent, we’ll have reason to conclude that we have achieved something. Of course, we want to do better than that, and strive to spread the benefit of our being here in this dynamic, ever changing, ever exciting space for creativity and its tangible result in new art.” Sajid Rizvi, Chair Art Gemini Prize.
