LONDON, UK — The Coffee Art Project is an art competition and exhibition held at some of the world’s leading coffee festivals. The competition the competition now enters it’s sixth year at the London Coffee Festival scheduled at The Old Truman Brewery, April 12-15.
The initiative supports Project Waterfall, which is committed to bringing clean water to communities which grow coffee through the Allegra Foundation and other registered charities.
So far, Project Waterfall has raised more than £520,000 and delivered clean water to over 20,000 people in Tanzania, Rwanda, Ethiopia and Nicaragua in partnership with WaterAid, Charity: Water and Water for People. This year it supports a project in the Jabi Tehnan district of Ethiopia that will bring clean water to a community of 7,000 people.
The programme aims to support and encourage artists by providing them with a platform to showcase their work, interact with other artists, engage with the coffee industry and coffee lovers.
Last year’s London Coffee Festival was attended by more than 30,000 people.
The work can be made on any medium and with any style, as long as it has a justifiable conceptual link to coffee and coffee culture.
