ART RAFFLE & LIMITED EDITION PRINTS SALE

After the resounding success of the SCOOP Art Auction back in April, we decided to go one step further and collaborate with the SCOOP Foundation on a fundraiser. Together, throughout the month of October we are raffling off my very special original painting 'The Artist on the Roof' worth €8,000 - 10,000 that featured on RTE News.

The funds raised will go towards supporting SCOOP Ed, which provides educational programmes for young people living in Direct Provision Centres in Ireland and in the Bajed Kandala camp in Iraq. A percentage of the funds raised will also go to SCOOP’s ‘Artist Fund’ which funds initiatives like the Artist Residency Programme, which aims to support an aspiring artist living in direct provision, who is interested in developing their arts practice.
