Empowering Art: Southgate school students host exhibition to raise funds for North Mid Charity

6th Form Art students from Southgate school hosted an exhibition of their art and put their work up for sale to raise funds for North Middlesex University Hospital Trust’s registered charity.

Art is not just about creativity; it's also a powerful means of giving back to the community. This was beautifully exemplified by the students of Southgate School, who recently organised an art exhibition at North Mid as part of their studies. This event not only showcased the students' artistic talents but also served as a platform for supporting their local community.

From intricate paintings to captivating photography, each piece of work around the theme of ‘Icons’ spoke volumes about the creativity and passion of its creator.

In addition to displaying their artwork, the students also crafted handmade tote bags, adding an extra touch of uniqueness to the event. These one-of-a-kind tote bags, along with the art pieces, were made available for sale, with all proceeds going towards projects supported by North Mid Charity. This thoughtful gesture not only highlighted the students' entrepreneurial spirit but also demonstrated their commitment to making a positive impact on their community.

The exhibition was a resounding success, drawing a diverse crowd that Art work display 1 included the students' friends and family, representatives of Southgate School, executives from North Mid, as well as esteemed guests like the Mayor of Enfield and other community partners.

Art has the power to inspire, to evoke emotions, and to bring people together, and we're thrilled to harness that power for our local community."

The executives from North Mid expressed their gratitude to the students for their initiative and generosity, emphasising the importance of community support in advancing the hospital's mission of providing excellent healthcare services. They also commended Southgate School for nurturing such talented and socially conscious individuals.

At the end of the exhibition, the students of Southgate School proved that art is not just a form of self-expression but also a powerful tool for philanthropy and community engagement. Their exhibition at North Mid will be remembered not only for the beautiful artwork on display but also for the spirit of generosity and compassion that it embodied.
