Since 2014 we are collaborating with World of Art Brut Culture (WABC), an NGO in China that helps people with disabilities express themselves through art and develop their artistic potential. People with special needs often struggle to find their footing in our society and a little help and support in the form of education and expression through art goes a very long way to improve their quality of life.The organization was founded in 2009 by Miao Shiming, a painter who had graduated from the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing. The foundation provides workshops and training programs in 20 communities in Shanghai, Beijing, Chengdu, and Hangzhou where people with special needs can practice drawing, music, pottery and other art forms. This helps the people with disabilities to express themselves and gain understanding in the general public. To raise awareness, the art pieces are exhibited and can be purchased to support the foundation.
We work with WABC artists to create designs for our corporate gifts in particular creatively designed coffee mugs and hold volunteer activities and fund raisers.
