The Art of Compassion exhibitions

Formed in 2014 by artist Leigh Sanders, the Art of Compassion Collective is a unique group of vegan artists/poets/writers/sculptors/musicians from all over the world. We’ve exhibited at Vegan Festivals in China, the Netherlands, America, Italy, Luxembourg and the UK, and also create calendars, posters, and cards to raise money for various animal charities and sanctuaries.

Empathy, art and lifelong friendships!
