‘Sit Down for Change’ is a unique collaboration of artists, designers and Scottish businesses to help end homelessness in Scotland.

BoConcept Scotland will host a unique ‘Sit Down for Change’ charity art auction in aid of Social Bite and the Scottish Government’s mission to eradicate homelessness within the next five years. Social bite have ‘invited’ 9000 people to join them in Princes Street Gardens for the World’s largest ever sleep out.

The aim is to stop the sticking plaster mentality and get to the root issues and eradicate homelessness by providing housing, rehabilitation, job opportunities and the support people need to get back on their feet.

BoConcept Scotland have teamed up with auctioneers McTears and a hand-picked selection of Scottish based artists & designers to bring together a bespoke collection of chairs. They will be exhibited and auctioned off at this event in the BoConcept Glasgow store on 30th November.

All of these designs are completely one-of-a-kind, highly collectible and not to be missed! There will not be any reserve prices on any of the lots. Each chair will have a certificate of authenticity signed by the artist.

The artists have offered their services include SSA member Kirsty Whiten, John Byrne, Timorous Beasties, Bob Harper, Fi Gordon from bluebellgray, Iona Crawford, Fraser Gray, Alasdair Gray, Callum Innes, Paul Stallan of Stallan Brand, Chelsea Frew, Bespoke Atelier, Jacqueline Donachie, Kate Davis & Simon Harlow, Gabriella Marcella of Risotto Studios, Zombiedan and Gordon Corrins.

Every penny raised will go to the Social Bite campaign.
