Throwupgallery came about to empower communities to make a difference in their respective communities. The term throw-up means a “quick freestyle graffiti bomb”.
The project was initially formed as a one off to display graffiti, street art and African art in Aberdeen. Our very first gallery show enabled local and Malawian artists to display art side by side raising funds for renewable energy projects in Malawi. By working together in that collaborative venture all of the participants become empowered and involved in making positive changes. We saw that from that first step opportunities were arising for artists and we decided to focus on artist opportunities.
We have now became an organisation whose group’s objectives are to:….
Promote the arts, culture and diversity and in furtherance of this by;
- Building artistic links between communities in Scotland and elsewhere.
- Promoting opportunities for artistic practice.
- Working in partnership with other bodies to achieve the purposes.
If you would like to donate, we are honoured.
