Art for Children - Charity Auction for the benefit of the ANAR Foundation

Art for Children

Online art auction for the benefit of the ANAR Foundation

Madrid, 9 September 2020.

COVID-19 has meant an extraordinary effort for the ANAR Foundation, which has had to adapt its ways of working to the situation of confinement and subsequent de-escalation. During this time, when no one could access the privacy of the home, ANAR managed to attend (first through the ANAR CHAT due to the security it represented thanks to its confidentiality and later with all its Lines) 21,912 requests for help from children and adolescents. 

Violence during that period, and up to the present day, has continued to grow: from 36.1% in March to 53.5% last July.

Facing this reality and having managed to help these children has meant a great human and financial effort for the ANAR Foundation to adapt to teleworking (obtaining the necessary technology to guarantee the confidentiality and rigour required by the extreme sensitivity of the minors' data and our care protocols), the fitting out of the care rooms and the reinforcement of the teams.

To support ANAR's work during the coronavirus emergency, the Spanish online art advisory and buying platform RedCollectorsis organising the first online auction of art galleries through its Instagram account for the benefit of the Foundation.

Elisa Hernando, founder of Redcollectors says that "the auction has been possible thanks to the generosity of the most prestigious art galleries and young artists with great international projection at the moment. This is the second auction organised by Redcollectors for the benefit of the ANAR Foundation. It is in our hands to make visible the suffering of these children and adolescents and we can all do something to change their reality, I hope that all art lovers support the initiative as it is a unique opportunity to buy works of art with a great quality and for a good cause".

For his part, Benjamín Ballesteros, director of programmes at Fundación ANAR, explained that "with the confinement, the situation of many children and adolescents who suffer domestic violence worsened seriously. At ANAR we made a great effort to continue helping them in this extraordinary situation. But with the 'new normal' the problems have not disappeared: we estimate that at least 76% of minors will continue to suffer the consequences of the pandemic. The ANAR telephone number has been declared an essential service for children but has received no funding to cope with the new situation. With the donation raised through the auction we will be able to help more children who need us".

In the first auction for the benefit of the ANAR Foundation, Redcolletors managed to sell works of art for a value of more than 50,000 euros. All the auctioned works were sold, works of great quality and from artists selected by our art consultancy and with a starting price well below the market price to encourage art lovers to buy art and to support this good and necessary cause. We hope that on this occasion the same thing will happen given the quality of the works and the participation, for the first time in an auction, of such prestigious art galleries.
