Eyes Wide Open was founded by a group of young people in 2006. We are dedicated to supporting and facilitating the development of creativity, innovative thought and talent. In a context where much of contemporary art remains abstract and difficult for people to appreciate and understand, Eyes Wide Open calls for a return to the link between art and beauty and simultaneously fosters an awareness of the benefits of cultural diversity and service. The group aims to build up steady relationships between people in the local community and make art more accessible. Our projects are collaborative in nature and all those who take part are given the opportunity to make, display and explain their work. Through the use of art, we proposes a vision that is global, respectful and non-exclusive.
