Art Can Save Lives

Wednesday 4th April 2012

SMart Network is a charity established in September 2000 to empower homeless and socially excluded people through creative activity and to engage them and the wider community in finding pathways to social integration. SMart Network was founded and developed by arts facilitator Jaime Bautista. Jaime has more than 30 years of experience working with severely disadvantaged people in the UK and abroad.

SMart’s philosophy is based on a model of rehabilitation through the arts. It was able to establish the model thanks to the experience of many years working with homeless and socially excluded people and using art as a main and immediate vehicle to re-engage people who, through adverse circumstances, suffer social exclusion.

The SMart model has been successfully implemented in projects across the UK. SMart is actively supporting several London-based projects and inspiring and supporting new ones through its outreach activities.

SMart has close relationships with leading cultural institutions including: The British Museum, The National Gallery, Somerset House & the Courtauld Institute, Tate Britain, Tate Modern, Whitechapel Gallery, Wallace Collection. Collectively they provide:

• Exhibitions of SMart artists work
• Lectures and practical workshops
• Strategic advice and support
• Special exhibitions access
