Shoe Box Living


London International Award 2009

Kids Company, London and the bryan adams Foundation are delighted to present ‘shoebox art’, a unique auction and exhibition of work by leading artists.

‘shoebox art’ was an idea that came from workshops organised by Kids Company staff, as part of an arts Programme, which reaches 6,000 children and young adults every year. It began as an arts workshop called ‘shoebox living’, enabling the children in primary schools to recreate their bedrooms in a shoebox.


In support of Kids Company’s work with vulnerable children, each of the following artists have recreated a room from their childhood inside a shoebox:

Grayson Perry, Alastair Mackie, Polly Morgan, Zaha Hadid, Mat Collishaw, Rachel Howard, Marc Quinn, Paul Hazelton, Jake & Dinos Chapman, David Bailey, Damien Hirst, Ross McNicol, Gavin Turk, Hugo Dalton, Oliver Clegg, Shorvon and Hunter, Polly Borland, Ronnie Wood, Simon Periton, Tom Gallant, Rob Ryan, Don Brown, John Isaacs, Kate Moross, Jeremy Deller, Linder Sterling, Boo Saville, Dan Macmillan, Natasha Chambers, Henry Hudson, Paul Fryer, Stella Vine, Daisy de Villeneuve, Zoe Paul, Mark Wallinger, Tim Braden, Stephanie Carlton Smith, Jamie Shovlin, Nathalie Murphy, Dawn Howley.
