Artists_Emergency is a new activist platform created by British-Pakistani artist Osman Yousefzada, which brings together creative voices to discuss and react to the socio-political and environmental issues of today.
The first Artists_Emergency project will launch will raise funds for the flood relief efforts in Pakistan that have displaced over 30 million people from their homes and livelihoods.
Through Artists_Emergency, Yousefzada has brought together 10 fellow British-Pakistani artists, each contributing an edition of 25 prints of work. Each of the editions will be sold for £100 with all proceeds going to DIL UK (Developments in Literacy), a Pakistan-based charity that predominantly works with women and children. Participating artists include: Faiza Butt, Hira Butt, Lubna Chowdry, Shezad Dawood, Faisal Hussain, Mahtab Hussain, Naiza Khan, Haroon Mirza, Farwa Moledina, and Osman Yousefzada.
