The Other Art Fair is delighted to announce that leading typography artist Rachel Joy Price will be creating a striking new mural for London in collaboration with CALM. The vibrant, large-scale piece will take over a significant space in King’s Cross outside the Fair in West Handyside Canopy, spreading a positive, hopeful message to The Other Art Fair’s visitors as they enter the fair. It will be bursting with colour and creativity, changing the urban scape and offering a much-needed spark of rejuvenation as we emerge from lockdown and return to creative spaces. 

In 2019, The Other Art Fair began working with Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) by launching the CALM Art Collective. The art collective brings together artists and art lovers to explore life’s issues, wellbeing and mental health through creativity. This year, the fair’s Virtual Edition will also present a selection of artworks from members of the group. Rachel’s mural exists as a wonderful development of this authentic collaboration.

CALM is a charitable organisation leading the movement for suicide prevention. In light of the startling fact that every week 125 people in the UK take their own lives, 75% of these being men, CALM founders launched their initiative to provide hope and real help to those in need.  

They are offering life-saving services such as such as 24-hour call lines, online conversations, therapeutic interventions, and bringing people together to reject living miserably by standing united against suicide. The movement is comprised of thousands of people and continues to grow every day, as their positive message spreads wider and wider. Their ultimate goal is a more hopeful society where everyone can thrive collectively and support each other through challenging periods. During the recent lockdowns and turbulent circumstances, CALM’s vital lifeline has become even more essential, and they have offered unconditional support to anyone in need.
