The exhibition will feature works from artists in residence at the studios, the sale of which shall benefit directly our chosen charities for the event. The exhibition shall open Wednesday 1st May at 6pm and be on display from Thursday 2nd-Saturday 4th and the pieces can be purchased at any time during those hours.

As millions across the globe, we at Pallas Projects/Studios have watched in horror at the onslaught against the Palestinian People and Territories being played out in front of us. With modest determination we have decided to help raise funds for much needed humanitarian aid in the region: choosing Medicines San Frontiers and the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees in the Near East.

Medicines San Frontiers, the Nobel Prize winning organisation, was founded in 1971, to speak out, to overcome borders to offer medical aid, and to deliver independent neutral and impartial aid internationally while going ‘where the patients are’.  They are currently working around the clock providing life saving vital medical care in Gaza in the face of immense challenges.

The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees in the Near East began operation on 1st May 1950 and is unique in its commitment to one group of refugees and has contributed to the welfare of four generations of Palestinians. Its remit was to prevent conditions of starvation and distress, and encompasses many humanitarian services including primary health care, camp improvement and emergency response.

Pallas Projects/Studios (founded 1996) is a not-for-profit artist-run organisation which operates artists studios and a year-round programme of artist-centred projects aimed at a wide audience. 

Our Pallas for Palestine Fundraising Exhibition is significant to us and we believe it would be of great interest to those with a passion for art and humanitarianism. 75% of funds will go directly to the aforementioned charities, with 25% covering materials and labour for the artists who so generously provided their works for this exhibition and fundraiser.

We’d like to thank The Digital Hub for hosting us at The Bank.
