Karmabank and short courses at the Slade
We are delighted to welcome two artists from Karmabank who will be taking part in our Saturday 8-week drawing course, starting tomorrow. This is our first short course taught “in-person” at the Slade, Gower Street site since Covid-19.
"KarmaBank, a London-based creative social impact project developer, makes sustainable change with the help of influential organisations such as the French Institute, London Youth Choirs, Opera Holland Park, Calm, and the Slade School of Fine Art. This year Karmabank focused on easing the cost-of-living crisis through community kitchens and foodbanks in West London and Hastings, and on supporting educational opportunities for women and girls seeking refuge in the UK. Karmabank developed the RAW (Refugee Art Works) collective after realising the devastating impact of displacement on female artists who flee war, climate disasters, gender and identity discrimination, leaving their tools, networks, studios and buyers behind. Through RAW, Karmabank micro-finances seed funding for materials and exhibition support, and, thanks to generous partners such as the Slade, opens doors to rebuild women’s lives through new opportunities."
