Changing Faces and the RP

We have worked with Changing Faces, a UK-based charity giving support and information to people with disfigurements to the face, hands or body, and their families.

 Girton College, Cambridge and the RP

People’s Portraits, our millennium collection is currently housed with Girton College, Cambridge. The collection offers an insight to the beauty of diversity within every day life. As the collection is accessible on a daily basis visitors are able to look for the greater stories within paintings that justify their creation. Each painter represented has an established and distinctive approach to their subjects, so each story is communicated in a multitude of visually original ways.

The RP is always looking for news ways of collaborating with people so if you think you might have an idea please contact us.
