Formed in 1957, the British partnership known as the Mouth and Foot Painting Artists (MFPA) is part of a unique worldwide movement of artists who paint without using their hands.
The MFPA is run by artists with disabilities, and aims to help other artists with disabilities attain self-respect, creative fulfilment, and financial security.
As artists with disabilities, the MPFA understand that the difficulties of day-to-day living can be all encompassing and very costly. This often makes it impossible for young people with disabilities to follow their interest in various areas of the arts (including painting, sculpture, music and dance).
In 1993 the MPFA established a trust fund to provide vital financial assistance to encourage early enthusiasm in the arts. They have been able to make the difference in many children’s lives by encouraging them to express themselves through their art and in some cases, to develop their talent into a career. Funds are generated by donations from current and past supporters of the MFPA, plus the artists themselves.
If you are a parent or other individual responsible for a child with physical disabilities (or an organisation that requires financial assistance to further the artistic development of children with physical disabilities), you can put your proposal to the trustees for consideration. If you would like more information or to submit a request, please do not hesitate to contact the MFPA.
