Peter Dunne Art Collective
The Peter Dunne Arts Collective specializes in Art education for homeless adults
as well as those with low income and disadvantaged people. We Provide these services in urban locations of Inner London where we have an organized volunteer collective of artists, who offer people the opportunity to learn not only the fundamentals of the painting process but also the possibility of representing their creative ideas with this medium.
We provide a safe and encouraging environment where the positive spirit and creativity of homeless people is nurtured through artistic expression, breaking down barriers of prejudice and fear with feats of beauty and creativity.
Our collective uses art as a release of expression and to give a voice to a range of people living on the fringe who dont normally have a voice. We strongly believe art is a therapy and a relief from disadvantaged circumstances.
Peter Dunne Arts achieves this by Promoting Learning by doing activities that promote self-empowerment.
Robin Hood Tax (robinhoodtax.org)
This tax on the financial sector has the power to raise hundreds of billions globally every year. It could give a vital boost to the NHS, our schools, and the fight against child poverty in the UK, as well as tackling poverty and climate change around the world.
Peter Dunne Arts will be exhibiting at the Robin Hood Tax on 23rd March at the All Hallows church in The City, showcasing work by pupils and learners.
