‘Drawings for the Community’, in support of Studienkompass

In 2019, we organised a fundraising initiative in which emerging artists were commissioned to produce bespoke drawings inspired by PAI Community’s mission and objectives. All the money raised was used to support Studienkompass, a German charity which makes young adults from non-academic backgrounds aware of their educational opportunities.

In line with the charity’s purpose, the selected artists were asked to take inspiration from the following quote by American writer Sydney Harris: “The whole purpose of education is to turn mirrors into windows”. One of the drawings, from British artist Liam Cobb, was selected by PAI employees to be printed in larger scale using a traditional lithographic technique. It was then exhibited, along with the other artworks, at the French Embassy in Berlin in February 2019 and at our AGM in June 2019.

A project which is very close to our hearts and we hope that there will be many more editions.
