A Touch of Art is an annual art exhibition which features African inspired art from up and coming African and non-African artists all over the world and aims to raise the profile of art from this region. Featured artists are given the chance to showcase their talents and speak to a diverse audience about their work. This year's exciting line up of artists include Shiri Achu, Shani Osman, Yaw Mante, Lotus Menezes and Catherine Mwase amongst others. In 2012, funds raised from the event went towards building a library for the children of the Royal Seed Home in Ofakour, Ghana. This library will also serve children in the neighboring communities.

In 2013, we will be supporting the Songhai Art Foundation which assists struggling artists in Ghana and Africa to commercialize and promote their work. The Songhai Art Foundation also aims to change the perception of Africans by promoting visual art as a viable career path and creating opportunities for artists in these communities to commercialize their art and showcase their talent.
