The Covid Creation Capsule is a charitable arts project supporting those suffering from the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, both in terms of their health and wellbeing, and economically, including those who are homeless, experiencing domestic abuse, and mental health conditions, as well as the healthcare professionals caring for them.
The auction features 35 highly collectible, unique pieces and limited editions including byJuergen Teller, David Shrigley, Rose Wylie, Rebecca Ackroyd, Juliette Mahieux Bartoli and Royal Academicians Eileen Cooper and Chris Orr.
50% of the funds raised will go to the Covid Crisis Rescue Foundation which will in turn be making direct donations to a number of selected charities including: End Youth Homelessness; Shout; Standing Together; and, Manor Gardens. A unique element of this project will be the provision of art materials to residents in shelters and refuges in recognition of the established benefits to mental health. CCR will also continue to provide PPE to healthcare workers, and facilitate Covid testing.

The Covid Crisis Rescue Foundation (CCR) has been supporting frontline workers and the public throughout the pandemic. Now that lockdown is easing, and the far-reaching impact of the crisis is becoming clear, we are striving to support the most vulnerable in our society.
Launched in late March, CCR has donated over 30,000 items of PPE and medical equipment to the frontlines, as well establishing a 'Covid Cab' service and a free 24/7 oxygen saturation probe loaning service.
