Time art exhibition

Time Art Exhibition 
6-15 April 2023 
Showcasing two pieces of art

Time is our affordable art exhibition that captures what it means to be part of the brain tumour community – from 6 April to 15 April 2023 at the Business Design Centre in London.


The exhibition features photographs, illustrations, paintings, scans and sculptures submitted by the community to help tell the stories of those affected by a brain tumour, as well as artwork from upcoming and renowned artists from around the globe – to help raise awareness of our mission to defeat brain tumours.

Time is open to the public to help everyone better understand the journey taken by patients, loved ones, supporters, clinicians and researchers when they’re living with a brain tumour or supporting somebody who’s received a diagnosis.

We are also holding some special “A night with…” events featuring some of our well-known artists and high profile supporters. Follow The Charity on social media or subscribe to our newsletter for more information about these events when details are confirmed.

Now that our silent auction and live auction is complete we still have some of the pieces available through our ‘buy it now site’ with all proceeds going towards accelerating a cure. Take a look at some of the fabulous pices crteated and donated by our community.

Time buy now site

Open to everyone, our online auction has now closed but we have some beautiful pieces left to purchase. You can buy a piece as a gift or for something that you can enjoy from the comfort of your sofa.

Make this half term one to remember with our children’s workshops at the Time Art Exhibition curated by The Brain Tumour Charity.

Join us for an exciting and inspiring experience that will awaken your child’s imagination and creativity. Our workshops offer a unique opportunity for children to explore different art forms, express their individuality, and build confidence in their artistic abilities.

Led by experienced instructors, our fun and interactive workshops are designed to inspire learning and experimentation, allowing children to engage with their imagination and develop new skills.

How else can I get involved?

Although we believe everybody affected by a brain tumour has the ability to create something meaningful that we’d be proud to display at the Time exhibition, we understand that not everyone feels confident displaying their art publically.

If you’d like to support the exhibition without displaying your own art, you can:

  • loan us a piece of art you own for display during the exhibition
  • gift us something from your own art collection to be part of the silent auction
  • let any contacts you have in the art world know how they can get involved
  • recommend visiting the exhibition to people you know and share the event on social media
  • volunteer with us and support the event through the gift of Time – no pun intended!
