11 Dec P.D.P. (People Developing People)
UThink P.D.P. (People Developing People) is a charity that was created to work with and help young people who were struggling to achieve academically at school but good at art. We take over unused spaces then set up community projects and art events.
We have spaces throughout the country where we can showcase art, provide both training workshops and affordable space for artists to work and exhibit.
We are having an open day on Sunday December 17th in our pop up studio, workshop and exhibition space at Number 1, Riverside Building, Hammersmith Embankment, W6 9WA. Its so that artists and people from the local community can come and see what we can offer. We would also like to hear what you would want from a pop up community space Plus there is an exhibition of affordable art created by young people and people in the community where you may find that exclusive, one off present for that hard to buy for person in your life.
Well be giving away Smiles 4 Miles colouring books for the first 30 children who arrive. This is a charity whose colouring books are made to raise funds for young refugees, with love from graffiti artists, street artists, illustrators and more! Its not for profit, just to show them we care.
We can give a refugee child a free colouring book for every one that is sold. There are over ten million misplaced children in the world right now, and everyone has been colouring to help them.
Riverside is an amazing bullding with four floors of space and fabulous light. We usually stage our exhibitions and workshops on the ground, 1st and 2nd floors with artists studio spaces on the 3rd and 4th floors.
Over the coming weeks we have a number of projects and courses for people to get involved in. They include; long exposure photography, light painting, canvas art, body painting, life drawing classes as well as our read it forward project and mental health awareness project, See You See Me, 1000 faces 1000 stories.
