Every Friday we come together as a team for a FedTalk. Those working in the office on a Friday can enjoy lunch on us (global pandemics allowing)! FedTalks – like TED talks, are a chance for us toget together as a team and share knowledge. It can also be a place to share with the team our hobbies and passions outside of work. Earlier this month our Business Development Officer, Craigspoke to the team about his work with the non-profit Migrate Art. As an art lover and advocate for innovation,Craig has been involved with MigrateArt since it was founded in 2016.
Craig was joined by Simon Butler Founder ofMigrate Art. The charity is on a mission to help those affected by homelessnessand the global migrant crisis. Migrate Art works with some of the world’s best artists to create original artwork sending a significant percentage of the funds raised to those in society who are displaced.
One of Migrate Art’smost recent projects has been their #MasksForMeals initiative.During lockdown they decided to make the most of a bad situation and adapt. Collaboratingwith some exciting artists including Miaz Brothers, Helen Beard andCamille Walala, creating reversible, washable and reusable face masks.100% of the net profitswere sent to the Refugee Community Kitchen to help feed the UK's homeless.
“Our #MasksForMeals project has raised over £30,000.It was one of those things where you plant the seed and don’t know where it’s going but we ended up tripling our initial target. The money raised will provide around 45,000 meals for those in need. I think we’re in a time where a lot more people are thinking about social issues and are waking up to the displacement of people around the world.”- Simon Butler, Founder of Migrate Art
