Artists Open Houses fundraising partnership with homeless charity Sussex Nightstop continues and in an exciting development for 2024 the charity is co-hosting an Open House with Cardinal Newman School, to showcase art donated by AOH artists for their charity auction.

Augmenting the superb range of art kindly given by AOH artists will be art students from Brighton MET, BHASVIC and the Cardinal Newman Arts Ambassadors, focused on the themes of community, kindness and resilience.

The online art auction opens on 1st May and runs each weekend throughout the month, with exhibits on display at Cardinal Newman’s BEACH (Business, Enterprise & Careers Hub). Buyers can purchase in-person or online, with a hassle-free system that enables people to bag their favourite artwork immediately by paying the asking price, or making and offer and waiting it out! All proceeds go towards Sussex Nightstop’s work ensuring that young people experiencing homelessness in Brighton & Hove can sleep safe.

If you’re an artist – please get involved

  • Support a great local charity and the only service in Brighton offering same day accommodation in a safe setting to young people experiencing homelessness.
  • Showcase your work online and at Cardinal Newman School. A private view at the start of AOH will bring together supporters of the charity and school, the media and artists involved. A larger audience, capturing friends and family of the 2,500 pupils at Cardinal Newman will attend the Open House, along with business supporters and the AOH community.
  • Fundraise for us at your open house – you can request a donation bucket or QE code by emailing [email protected]
