Art with Heart is our annual art exhibition held in our Market St studio for one night only, which raises money for local Melbourne based charities. ‘Silver Lining’ is the theme for this year’s exhibition, which will again draw on the talents of the Truly Deeply families.
All artwork will be sold in a blind auction to raise money for charity. This year we will be raising funds to support One Voice – Mobile Shower Bus.
One Voice is a not-for-profit organisation whose aim is to create positive change in peoples lives by providing mobile shower services to help restore dignity in people experiencing homelessness.
For information about the wonderful work they do please visit One Voice – Mobile Shower Bus.
Art with Heart started as a way for us to combine our creative talents as brand designers with our belief that we should each play a part in making the world a better place.
As a brand strategy and design agency the one resource we have at our disposal is our creativity and that of the broader creative community we belong to.
Art with Heart was launched in 2002 as a way for us to leverage our creative talents for social benefit. We fleshed-out a concept that would be at the same time a great event for our clients and community and a way to raise money for a worthy local cause.
Each year we select a new cause to raise money for. Now in its 15th year Art with Heart has raised more than $288, 545.13 for charities including;
- The Lighthouse Foundation
- The Australian Childhood Foundation
- St Vinnie’s Soup Kitchen
- Melbourne Citymission’s Breakfast Club
- Worawa Aboriginal Girls College
- Swags for Homeless
- Asylum Seeker Resource Centre
- e.motion 21
- Good Cycles
- Beyond Words
The event committee selects the charity by popular vote. Charities must have a local impact of some kind and must not receive large-scale public funding to be considered.
Truly Deeply’s staff and a herd of invited artists contribute artwork, which is sold by blind auction on the night. Artists range from the well known to the novice, with a contemporary Australian feel.
