Exhibition Supports Homelessness Charity

Tuesday March 19 2024

Linda Hoskins


An Edinburgh-based fine artist’s latest project will help support women recovering from homelessness in the city.

Linda Hoskins’ Illuminate Exhibition, launching to the public on March 28, is raising funds for Bethany Christian Trust’s Anne Hope House project. Anne Hope House is a residential community for women who are homeless, a place of support where women are empowered to rebuild their lives after trauma.

Linda said: “The work that will be exhibited at Illuminate is full of hope, full of light and full of joy. This exhibition is supposed to make you feel. The artwork uses colour to highlight the darkness some people face in life and offers a sense that there is always hope. The light can break in and the course of a life can be redirected.”

Linda has a history of making art with a direct social impact. She founded the Stay Seen Project in 2020, raising funds and awareness for charity SOHTIS (Survivors of Human Trafficking in Scotland), raising £10,000.

She added: “The joy of partnering with charities is to be part of something bigger than me. The highlight is when my work leads to bigger conversations. Those conversations might be about the work of the charities and the people they support, they help people find a connecting point with one another.”

The Illuminate Exhibition will run from March 28 – April 8 at Virgin Money, 83 George Street, Edinburgh. Learn more at www.bethanychristiantrust.com/illuminate-linda-hoskins
