10×10 – Drawing the City of London
Every year Article 25 place a 10×10 grid over part of London. The 100 resulting squares are allocated to prominent architects and artists, who create artwork inspired by the square. The pieces are auctioned in November and the proceeds fund our work designing buildings that ensure the human rights, such as the right to education and health, of some of the worlds poorest people are not violated.
10×10 has the support of some of the biggest names in art and architecture, including Tim Makower, who invented 10×10, Antony Gormley, Norman Ackroyd, Lord Norman Foster and Zaha Hadid.
10×10 2014 was the most successful to date and it raised a record £119,500. The money will support Article 25’s healthcare building projects in the developing world.
Robin Cross, Managing Director of Article 25, said:
“Each year 10×10 provides an incredible boost to Article 25, not only because so many of our projects rely on the funds raised from the event but also because of the support and enthusiasm shown by so many people towards our work.
Article 25 is a small charity with limited resources and 10×10 could not happen each year without the inspiring and generous support of all those who participate: artists, hosts, guests, sponsors , pro bono supporters, and the journalists who help spread the word about 10×10. I want to extend my heartfelt thanks to all of you and to the dedicated team at Article 25 who worked tirelessly over the last few months to make the event such a resounding success.
Special thanks must also go to The Shard – your generous partnership has ensured that this year’s 10×10 has been incredibly special and memorable”.
