Turner prize winner Jeremy Deller’s work will be up auction amongst others.

Art Refuge helps displaced young people in Nepal deal with the trauma of seeking asylum though art therapy. Often separated from their families and having to travel by foot over the Himalayas, these kids really benefit from the chance to express themselves through painting and drawing. All proceeds will go to getting two UK-based art therapists set up in Kathmandu, and keeping our tremendous projects going for the next year.

All welcome
