Opinionated Objects at Debut Contemporary

Me and Twinkle will be doing a fund raising event at Debut Contemporary Gallery on Saturday July 30th, we need lots of people to donate their unwanted objects so we can turn trash to treasure! All the info about the event is below.

Debut Contemporary Gallery, 82, Westbourne Grove, Notting Hill W2 5RT
Saturday 30th July 11am - 5pm

WHAT: What do YOU want for the future of our planet?  Politically, economically, spiritually, environmentally, in your lifetime, what do you wish to happen?

Twinkle and Tinsel’s 'up-cycling' event in the Debut Contemporary gallery will explore this question and find out what you want to happen in our world.

YOU bring us an old object you don't know what to do with anymore
WE recycle it by turning it into a piece of art.

HOW: Along with the unwanted object we want you to tell us your hopes and dreams for our planet. We will paint these opinions as text on the objects. These redundant objects will thus be transformed into unique pieces of art, old will become new and they will start to communicate your hopes for the future.

All pieces will be signed by the artists and then returned to their owners as brand new unique pieces of art.


To have your object up-cycled we ask for a donation which will be given to our chosen charity. The charity is Ubuntu Education Fund (, a non-profit organisation which provides orphaned and vulnerable children affected by 
HIV/AIDS, poverty and abuse in the townships of Port Elizabeth, South Africa access to the world of higher education and work.  Ubuntu aims to transform the lives of the children they serve so that they can grow up healthy, educated, well-supported and prepared to enter university and fulfil their dreams. 10% of all gallery sales on July 30th will also go towards Ubuntu Education Fund.

Opinionated Objects at Debut Contemporary will operate on a first come first serve basis, contact us at in advance to get your name on the list and we will send you instructions. Once the list is full up we wont be able to take on any more objects.  As the event is for charity we will be asking for the donation upon delivery of the item. 

On the day, we will be sat in the window at Debut Contemporary painting the objects in view of passers by.  The completed items will then be exhibited, we will be adding each finished item to the collection in the gallery throughout the day.
