Art created by young people on NCH projects went on exhibition at a London Underground station last week. All the artists are from vulnerable or disadvantaged backgrounds and were given the opportunity to display their paintings through the charity's Life Matters initiative.
Life Matters enables young people to express themselves through art and learn about it through workshops and gallery tours. London Underground agreed to showcase their talents as part of its community arts project, Platform for the Future. Sponsored by professional services firm Ernst & Young, the paintings will be on display at Bromley-by-Bow tube station on the District line until October. The artwork can be viewed on NCH's web site at www.nch.orh.ul/lifematters.
