Promising artists from Camden’s Arlington homeless hostel had something extra to celebrate over Christmas – their work is on show at the Royal Academy of Arts (RA).
The community programme Art is Part of the Equation has seen the RA feature 15 pieces of art created by people living at the hostel, which is run by the One Housing group.
Samantha Latouche from One Housing said: “Not many artists can say they have exhibited at the Royal Academy, and this is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our staff, volunteers and residents.”
Nazzi is one of the hostel residents lucky enough to be exhibiting her art.
She said: “Thank you to the RA for exhibiting our art. Showing our work encourages us to continue and maybe one day be artists.”
