AN ART PLATFORM SELLING CHINESE TEA-THEMED ARTWORKS AND WARES TO RAISE MONEY FOR THE LONDON CHINESE COMMUNITY CENTRE

We’re all aware of how severely the pandemic has affected organisations around the world. But this, coupled with a huge rise in xenophobia and Asian hate has faced the London Chinese Community Centre, London’s oldest Chinese cultural centre, with permanent closure.

So, as a creative collective, we’ve set out to change the conversation. And what better way to do that, than over a cup of tea? It’s an ancient Chinese ritual of welcome and something everyone in the UK loves. So over 50 artists have come together to help direct that love to the LCCC!

£45,000

TRANSFORMATION STARTS WITH CONVERSATION

This single teabag, kindly donated by the LCCC from their community kitchen, not only embodies the priceless conversations to come, but also buying it from the LCCC will single-handedly fund them for the rest of 2021. Ensuring they can continue to enrich the lives of the diverse communities around them.

Created in collaboration with RoomFifty, our Communitea artists centred their works around the themes of cultural rituals, appreciation and discussion. With these artworks, we hope to highlight the importance and significance of Asian culture in all of our lives. All profits go to helping save the LCCC!
