She Lights Up the Night

To coincide with International Women's Day, Protein Studios and ad agency BBH London are hosting She Lights Up The Night, a graphic art exhibition in aid of Refuge. 10 contemporary artists are contributing one-off pieces to the show including illustrator Jean Julien, 'professional doodler' Hattie Stewart (below), design duo Crispin Finn, silkscreen artist Kate Gibb and painter and textile designer, Kindah Kalidy


The artwork will be auctioned on 30th of March - you can also bid in advance online if you want to get your hands on one of the pieces. If they're a little out of budget, there will also be a series of limited prints available to buy from £50 at the pop-up print shop at Protein from 10-12 March.

Refuge is a domestic violence charity working all over the UK; one in four women will experience domestic abuse at some point in their lives, and two women a week are killed in the UK by a partner or former partner.


She Lights Up the Night, Protein Studios, 31 New Inn Yard, Shoreditch, London. 10–12 March 2017, free entry.
