Launched to support the incredible work carried out by NHS staff in these challenging times and supported by cellist and Principal of the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, @julian_lloyd_webber, ART SAVES US seeks to use the universal language of art and charity to strengthen the sense of unity and humanity, and to console those in isolation, especially the elderly and the vulnerable.
‘Art Saves Us’ was founded by Shanghai-born, London-based Kailan Lucas, a US lawyer. Her creative focus is on Sino-European cultural exchanges in the worlds of art, literature and music, having founded and curated the First Shanghai International Poetry Festival. ‘Art Saves Us’ is proud to count leading figures from the arts as its main supporters, including Nobel Literary Prize Nominee, the poet Adonis; cellist, Julian Lloyd Webber; former Poet Laureate, Sir Andrew Motion; architect Patrik Schumacher, Head of Zaha Hadid Architects practice and leading contemporary Chinese artist, Xu Bing from the China Central Academy of Fine Arts.
Ms Kailan Lucas noted: “Art Saves Us is pleased to have young musicians coming to the forefront to show support for the frontline workers. Through their action, we hope to see a positive influence on the younger generation at this unusual and difficult time. We will continue to use the universal language of the arts and charity to strengthen the sense of unity and humanity”.
Further events are planned as the current health crisis unfolds.
