BAAAU

I am so proud to take part in this initiative and to create all visual communication for such an important cause.

BAAAU is a voluntary group which supports Hosts and Ukrainian Guests in Letchworth, Baldock and surrounding areas. The Group was formed in March 2022 to respond to the war in Ukraine.

This is what have been achieved. 

1. Attracted grants from HCC and from Herts Community Fund to not only help our families but the wider Ukrainian  Community. The Settlement which you have contributed to so generously attracts the wider U community. 

2. We have paid for deposits, first months rents and a household equipment grant for those setting up independently in the area. 

3. We have made educational grants for those young people going on to further or higher education. 

4. We monitor welfare and cost of living for all our families and help them reduce bills by looking at how they can make utilities more cost effective. We all make cost of living grants during the winter and other grants during the summer if funds allow. 

5. We advocate on their behalf with local and central government politicians and officers and make sure they are aware of benefits and other matters. 

6.  We support Hosts and Guarantors who have generously agreed to underwrite rental agreements. Without these Ukrainian’s would not have independent homes. These Hosts and Guarantors feel supported by BAAAU.

Art Sale for Ukraine

As a Birthday celebration this year, married out an auction and sale to support beautiful Ukraine. I invited my friends to take part in my pre-birthday art marathon and the birthday sale to find new homes for my very dear pieces, and with your kind donations to support some wonderful Ukrainians in the UK and volunteers back home.

So what’s important, all the profit goes to charities: to my beloved one in the UK – BAAAU who have helped Ukrainians to escape the war and keep supporting them. And some amazing volunteers in Ukraine that I know and would like to help. The auction ended on 23 October here.

BUT as so many of you, my wonderful friends, asked to carry on the sale after that date and keep donating, and ask for more art, I keep the page open for longer. The remaining artworks* are here:

* The sold artworks are labelled with the yellow circles.

Creative Project. London 2017

This was a creative project, it isnot my point of view on the subject. Even though Social Media (SM) may cause frustration and irritation sometimes, it proves to be one of the most precious tools to exchange information, opinions, inspiration and ideas. Although as every powerful tool SM has to be use with consideration and fully consciously.*

*SM point of view might change with time. Check this space for more thoughts on this subject.
