Toilet, loo, bog, WC, lavatory whatever you like to call it, we all take for granted the luxury of having one. 1 in 3 people don’t. ThirdWay Trust’s art fair aims to raise funds to aid the poorest communities across the globe, building toilets and providing life-saving education on hygiene.
Call for Artists

ARTIQ are delighted to partner with ThirdWay Interiors to hold a charity art fair to mark the launch of the ThirdWay Trust.

A third of the world’s population doesn’t have a safe place to go to the toilet. Without basic sanitation, communities fall ill, can’t work, can’t earn, and struggle to take a step out of poverty. Joining forces with aid organization Toilet Twinning, ThirdWay Interiors have launched ThirdWay Trust in a bid to tackle poverty overseas. The fund will support the construction of household toilets, as well as helping to provide clean water and hygiene education, in remote and hard-to-reach communities in Africa, Asia and Central America.

Call for Artists!
We are looking for artists to submit a work in response to the theme of ‘water’.
From Da Vinci’s ‘The Baptism of Christ’ to Monet’s ‘Water Lillies’ and David Hockney’s ‘A Bigger Splash’, water has proven the source of inspiration for the creation of some of history’s greatest works of art.

Now more than ever, the elixir of life provides a stimulus to reflect on the current challenges and concerns of both the environment and global poverty.

How to submit
Prints only. All submissions must be suitable for print (hi-res, 300 dpi minimum) and submitted electronically at the intended print size (sizes accepted: A1, A2).
