Seventeen renowned artists have come together to help support the Inspire Foundation’s disability programmes. Every artist donated a work of art to an online auction with the objective of raising funds so that Inspire Foundation can reach out to more children and families who need its help.

The auction features works from Andrew Borg, Andreana Boldarini, Anna Galea, Arlette Zammit, Christopher Saliba, Clemens Hasengschwandtner, Debbie Caruana Dingli, Edward John Schembri, Jacqueline Agius, James Vella Clark, Julien Vinet, Marisa Attard, Mark Schembri, Nadine Noko, Noel Attard, Patrick Dalli and Richard Saliba. The works include a selection of landscapes, portraits and abstract pieces, as well as illustrated collages and the use of mixed media.

The fundraising initiative was launched on Friday, 24th October during a special event at Farsonsdirect Wine Shop, where all the works of art were exhibited and Hon. Emmanuel Mallia opened the online auction. The website for this auction is auction.inspire.org.mt.

“Inspire helps more than a thousand children with disabilities, as well as their families, but there are many more people out there who need our help. Our disability programmes help people learn better, socialise better, find employment and to become more independent. They are run by specialists and experts in the field, and this is why their success rates are incredible. It is our aim to be able to reach out to more and more people who need us, but for this to be possible, we need your help because our programmes are mainly sustained through fundraising activities, such as this exhibition,” explained Inspire Foundation’s CEO, Antonello Gauci.

The exhibit will remain open at Farsonsdirect until the 20th November, 2014 and bids can be placed at auction.inspire.org.mt until 30th November, 2014.
