Kisharon clients show their art is in the right place

Fundraising exhibition showcases talents of those supported by learning disability charity


Clients of learning disability charity Kisharon exhibited their impressive artworks at JW3, raising £55,000.

Also demonstrating the importance of inclusion, the event, HeART Edit, included paintings, photographs and sculptures that were auctioned alongside works including a Damien Hirst.

Supported by 30 artists, Kisharon clients worked on their pieces over a six-month period, creating over 65 exhibits.

"We learn and grow from the experiences of others, including those with learning disabilities,” CEO Richard Franklin said.

“At Kisharon, we focus on recognising the talent within individuals, not their disabilities. The success of HeART Edit embodies the essence of our community and organisation."

Event co-chairs Freidi Klein and Sari Freidman said: "The unwavering dedication of the artists and mentors involved in this project has resulted in a resounding triumph. We are immensely proud to share this collection, brimming with passion and creativity."
