Welcome to Picturing Peace, a project by artist Jane Delaford Taylor and her daughter Esther, aiming to utilize art's influence to raise funds for the safe evacuation of a family of 25 Palestinians trapped in Gaza.

Saed, the family patriarch and a longtime friend of the artist, has made the difficult choice to evacuate his family, including his wife, children, disabled parents, and extended relatives, from Gaza to Egypt. Despite his previous contributions to his community through a tech hub and start-up accelerator, destroyed during the recent conflict, Saed now faces financial hardship.

The evacuation process will occur in stages, with nearly half of the necessary funds already raised through donations. However, an additional £50,000 is required to ensure the family remains united.

Proceeds from the sale of each painting will directly support evacuation efforts, enabling Saed's family to rebuild their lives in a safer environment.

Once the fundraising goal is met, the project aims to assist other Palestinian families in similar situations. Picturing Peace emphasizes the transformative power of art and community engagement in effecting change.

The project invites artists to contribute their original works and spread awareness to support families in need. While it may not be possible to aid every family, collective efforts can still make a significant impact.

Picturing Peace extends beyond art; it symbolizes the belief that art can inspire meaningful change.

You can support the project by purchasing artwork or sharing its message on social media. Together, let's use art and community solidarity to bring peace and hope to those affected by conflict.

We believe all civilian families should have the right to seek sanctuary from active war zones. 

Below you'll find links to support other families desperate to save their children too.  Please add your drop to the ocean - it does make a difference!

'It's easy to feel helpless in the face of great horror, and for a kind of emotional paralysis to set in where we end up doing nothing because we are afraid our little effort will not help. This is probably one of the greatest hurdles humanity needs to overcome, and it's one of the biggest lies we tell ourselves.  We know you care if you've read this far, and if all you have to offer is a share on social media that's still amazingly helpful because your share brings in other people who care too! 

If you are still reading this and about to press a link to simply share or also donate, thank you - you are a wonderful human being!'
