Creative residents get their chance to shine

In less than two months, a series of works by our most creative residents will be going on show at a central London gallery.

The A5 Art Show, sponsored by leading property agents Savills, will see our residents’ creations displayed alongside work by professional artists and members of Notting Hill Genesis staff.

Artworks – all originals – have been chosen for the show as time ticks down to the big launch, all of which have to be A5 in size and will be available for purchase both in person or online.

The website for the event,, will launch on Monday 5 November.

Every item will have the same £50 price tag, no matter who created it, and will be displayed anonymously. All of the money raised will go towards Notting Hill Genesis’ Hardship Fund to support some of our more vulnerable residents.

Ten resident workshops were held in various venues over the summer and a selection of work from those events will also be on display.

Mandy Worster, volunteer programme manager for Notting Hill Genesis, said: “This is our first art exhibition since the merger and we are really excited to be showing what a creative and talented group of residents we have.

The artworks we received were of an incredibly high standard and we are all looking forward to being able to unveil the show in November. We would also like to say a huge thank you to the professional artists who have taken part, as well as our sponsors Savills.

The A5 Art Show will be held at the Koppel Project in High Holborn from Thursday 29 November to Friday 21 December.
