Create, donate and participate at the NABS Art Auction

The NABS Art Auction is back,  bigger and better than ever before.

Art promotes mental wellness by enabling self-expression, fostering mindfulness, reducing stress, boosting self-esteem, and enhancing overall psychological wellbeing.

We’re calling all creatives and hobbyists alike, we want to see your passion unleashed and your best work on display! Get ready to ignite your creativity and exhibit NABS Art Auction.

We want everyone in the advertising, media and marketing community to unleash their inner artist, by pledging to donate their artwork to the NABS Art Auction and let art become your ally in nurturing mental wellbeing.

As in previous years, we’ll also be aiming to persuade some established artists and photographers to donate their work too, which could make a significant difference to our fundraising.

In October, there will be three live Art Auctions in London, Manchester and Edinburgh, plus, an online auction- with all proceeds going to NABS, your industry charity.
