Creatives Against Covid – Irish designers, photographers, artists and illustrators are raising vital funds

The Irish creative community have banded together to create and sell works to raise much needed money for Women’s Aid and ISPCC Childline.

A new initiative consisting of Irish creatives from all disciplines is raising money for Women’s Aid and ISPCC Childline in the midst of the pandemic.

The word “Soon’ is at the core of the initiative, the various artists and creatives have centered their work around a more optimistic core.

It sees the design community create and sell original material with the proceeds going to the two respective charities.

You’ll no doubt be spending a lot of time in your living room so if you’d like to brighten it up you can cop one of the original pieces for a very reasonable €40. You’ll also be helping to support two charities that are feeling the pressure more so than ever.

The Women’s Aid National Helpline is under increased strain with the societal restrictions and financial pressure putting vulnerable people in frightening positions, with a marked increase in the cases of domestic abuse cases being recorded across the country.
