Art For Syria (Cork Art Raffle)


Our Cork-based project has attracted support from over 150 artists world-wide! It will culminate in a raffle event on Sunday November 20th. Art for Syria is a creative collaboration that aims to raise funds for humanitarian aid for war-torn Syria. It is a creative show of solidarity with the people of Syria who are going through the worst humanitarian crisis of our time, with over 4.7 million refugees fleeing war.

Artists have generously donated their work, from well-known Cork based artists to artists from Japan, U.S, UK, France, Germany and Taiwan. In total, more than 170 artworks are on display in shop windows and businesses across Cork City, until Saturday 19th November.

All works will be exhibited at the finale event in St. Peter's Church, North Main Street, on Sunday, November 20th, from 1-4pm, with the raffle throughout the event. Winners will get a randomly selected piece of art.

All funds raised will be sent to Médecins Sans Frontières and Syria Relief. Tickets are just €5 and are on sale at many of the display locations and at St. Peter’s Church.
