About this Event

“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up” Pablo Picasso

Young Westminster Foundation, Total Media UK and Positive View Foundation are delighted to invite you to a fundraiser in support of vital outreach youth work in Westminster, hosted by the Lord Mayor of Westminster, Councillor Ruth Bush.

The collection will feature affordable art from a variety of artists, celebrating Westminster and its youth culture.


Thursday 13th Feb 2020

6.30 – 9.30pm (Auction begins at 7.30)

The Greenhouse Centre, 35 Cosway Street, Marylebone, NW1 5NS


The auction will raise funds to support an outreach youth programme in Westminster, in addition to young artists through Positive View Foundation. Outreach youth work involves meeting young people where they are at, in their communities. Youth workers aim to reach out and make contact with young people who may have little access to provision and introduce them to what’s on offer. The aim of the work is to enable young people to develop their full potential as individuals and as members of our Westminster community.


£20 + booking fee per person, to include light food, drink & entertainment
