Artists and art-lovers, we all believe in the power of art to make a difference. We work with artists to expose the arms fair – painters, poets, performers & the passionate amateurs.
We run a biennial art exhibition to coincide with the arms fair being held in London. We are all volunteers.
We are the proud receivers of the 2018 Nesta & Observer’s New Radicals award and of an original Banksy in 2017.
Instagram Artist Residencies (2019)
We’re pleased to host two artist residencies on our Instagram in 2019:
Catch up with the residencies on our Instagram.
Art the Arms Fair 2017
We held an award-winning exhibition, featuring art from Banksy, Peter Kennard, Darren Cullen, Jill Gibbon and Danny Minnick. We also hosted events featuring Cassetteboy, Dizraeli, Attilla the Stockbroker and Kate Smurthwaite.
The exhibition and events attracted global press coverage.
As well as raising awareness, we donated over £200,000 to Campaign Against the Arms Trade and Reprieve.
We thank Guerilla Fund, Lush, Network for Social Change and X-Y for their support.
We are a social enterprise. Any money raised from the exhibition and the events is donated to Campaign Against The Arms Trade (CAAT) and others working to challenge the arms trade.
