Sketch for Survival 2021
Open at London's Southbank from 17 - 28 November.
This year's Sketch for Survival exhibition opens at [email protected] on November 17, 2021, but the auction catalogue and opportunity to vote in the Leisure Painter People's Choice Award are available now.
Sketch for Survival is a global art initiative in aid of conservation, which we are proud to be associated with.
An annual collection of original artworks is donated by professional and celebrity artists.
The collection celebrates the beauty and colour of the natural world while also raising awareness about the threats facing it, including those posed by human activity.
Diverse artworks, from oils and watercolours to sketches and street art, exclusively feature endangered species and at-risk wild spaces.
Opening bids start from as little as £75 and all proceeds go to towards supporting Explorers Against Extinction Projects.
Sketch for Survival has so far donated over $250,000 USD to frontline conservation projects and has proved to be an effective way to raise awareness about a whole range of global issues, from the Illegal Wildlife Trade to Climate Change and habitat loss. More than 10,000 people visted the last exhibition tour.
