Artists and curators from across the world are uniting to raise funds for those affected by the recent earthquakes in Nepal.

Set up by artist and curator Gaynor O’Flynn, Artists For Nepal will see over 100 fundraising events and activities take place worldwide. This includes exhibitions, gigs, talks, performances, installations, screenings and readings.

A number of high profile names have already contributed, including Jeremy Deller and Tracey Emin. Following a launch at the Venice Biennale, there will also be debates and discussions on the campaign with May events at London’s ART15 art fair (21-23 May), Hay Festival (21-31 May) and The Athenaeum Hotel, London (22 May). In June, the campaign will be at Glastonbury Festival (24-28 June).

O’Flynn is calling for more people to get involved. She said: “Artists For Nepal is about artists, at every level, across all disciplines who believe in art for social change.

“We’ve got children creating postcards for the project from Brisbane to Stockholm, students creating exhibitions in Dalston and Delhi, plus music and film screenings from Mexico City to Helsinki. We need to keep Nepal’s plight on people’s minds, especially as the media coverage fades.”

Artists are invited to offer their services at a local event, whilst curators are being asked to create their own unique event and nominate a beneficiary of any funds raised. O’Flynn adds: “Together we can send a message to the media and the world of the power of the arts for social change.”
