The Wilderness Project
The Wilderness Project is an exhibition, presented by The Haven + London, which will showcase the work of a diverse group of artists reflecting on the experience of life in lockdown during the Covid19 pandemic.
Presented online, the exhibition will provide a space for viewers to reflect on their own experience of the wilderness year we have all been through, asking questions about how we have changed as individuals and as a society, how have we struggled? What has sustained us? And who are we now as we look with hope towards the easing of restrictions?
Artwork will be available to bid on from 29th March – 13th May with selected prints available to purchase from 29th March. Please go to our exhibition website for more details.
The vision of the Haven + London is a world where every creative is free to achieve their creative potential. We are the only UK Charity solely dedicated to supporting the emotional, spiritual and mental wellbeing of the creative community in London. No other organisation is meeting the specific needs of this fragile but vital community where debt, addictions, depression, anxiety, self-harm and suicides are rife. In working towards our vision we provide emotional and professional support that empowers the creative community to flourish and thrive. This includes ongoing pastoral care, professional counselling, networking opportunities, personal development workshops and training opportunities, creative conferences and research.
If you are a creative in need or someone who wants to support the work we do for creatives please get in touch. We’d love to hear from you.
Create more, suffer less
London’s creative industries provide almost 800,000 jobs, more than the financial services sector, and boost the economy by over £40bn. Nearly 50% of creative workers are self-employed. These are the people who enhance humanity. Creatives bring innovation, art and entertainment to the world but the incidences of debt, depression, anxiety, eating and mood disorders, addiction and suicide are rife in the creative community. No other charity exists solely to address the specific practical and personal needs of the creative community.
Our programmes and services enable creatives to develop resilience and experience a safe, shared space to take control of their own destiny and talent. We support creatives at every stage of their careers from those starting out to those at the pinnacle of their professional lives.
We know from the hundreds of Creatives we’ve already helped that our work saves lives, develops careers and boosts creativity across London and beyond.
