The ‘Animal & Creative Rights’ Exhibition in Brick Lane

Last night we were fortunate enough to attend the private viewing of the ‘Animal & Creative Rights’ group Street Art exhibition, the latest installment of initiatives for part of the ‘Takeover Collective’ curated by Artista in Brick Lane. Moving to East London this year the show had a number of objectives, firstly setting to reach new audiences among the local community who work and live in Tower Hamlets, and secondly to bring together 5 artists to raise awareness for Animal and Creative Rights justice system, through art focused on a wildlife theme. So in addition to the fantastic set of works presented by artists from London, Birmingham and South Africa the opening night saw a collection being held for the London Legal Support Trust and 25% of sales from any purchased artwork to be donated to Born Free, the international wildlife charity that supports keeping animals in the wild.
