Strike: The Helmet Project is a unique charity exhibition of bike helmets turned into works of art, which will be on display from Friday 1 September 2017 at Look Mum No Hands, in London. The project aims to raise awareness about cycle safety and the importance of wearing a helmet by uniting prominent and underground figures from the UK’s creative industries – from artist Grayson Perry to fashion brand Shrimps – to decorate the same canvas – a bike helmet.
All original artworks that form part of Strike: The Helmet Project will be auctioned online to raise much-needed funds for the excellent charity Headway, and awareness for brain injury survivors. The ultimate aim of the exhibition is to make the wearing of a bike helmet “hip” rather than purely functional – and to ensure everybody knows their life-saving potential.
