Affiliated Charity

The Kensington & Chelsea Foundation

Local businesses and charities volunteering for a Kensington & Chelsea Foundation event

The Kensington & Chelsea Foundation is a local charity, established seven years ago to bring to light and help address the stark contrasts that exist in the Royal Borough.

We raise awareness of these inequalities and champion small local charities and community groups who work to make a difference in the borough. We act as their gateway to residents, schools and businesses who want to engage with and support their own community.

We do this through our extensive expertise and experience of the local community, making it easier for people to partner with us and find causes they would like to support. Last year alone we raised over £310,000 for 57 local charities, yet there is still so much more we can do together.

Did you know for example that up to 40 elderly residents die of cold-related illnesses each year in this borough? Or that the Golborne ward in North Kensington is the second poorest ward in London?

Find out how you can make a difference to people’s lives in the Royal Borough by coming to talk to us at Multiplied. We would love to meet you.

Artist Commission

Maurice Carlin

The new work in situ at Excelsior Works in South Bermondsey, London. The missing section of prints will be on view at Multiplied

Multiplied in association with art organisation V22 is proud to support the creation of a new work by Maurice Carlin. Carlin has undertaken a 3-week-long performance work – to ‘publish’ a 5,000 square foot warehouse floor plate with CMYK prints and live web streaming, resulting in a large-scale installation at V22’s Excelsior Works building in South Bermondsey. Carlin’s printing method is inspired by ancient Chinese rubbing techniques originally used to reproduce the imprint of stone inscriptions, allowing information to be duplicated and distributed – the first known form of publishing. The installation on view at Multiplied comprises a section of this larger project.

Maurice Carlin’s work explores artistic structures and processes – themes that emerged from an independent peer-led educational structure he co-founded in 2007. Islington Mill Art Academy has been acknowledged as one of the first in the recent wave of alternative art schools set up in response to raised student fees and the debate surrounding the relevance and usefulness of mainstream art education. Recently Carlin has been exploring the subject of shared ownership through the production of ‘distributed installations’ – artworks made of multiple elements, which have the potential to exist individually or together as one work, where the life of the work beyond the studio and exhibition becomes equally important.

Carlin's recent exhibitions and projects include Name it by Trying to Name it, The Drawing Center, New York (2015), PRESS ROOM, Creative Time Summit, Venice Biennale (2015), The Negligent Eye, The Bluecoat Gallery, Liverpool (2014), Self-Interruption, Jack Chiles Gallery, New York (2013) and First...Next...Then...Finally, Castlefield Gallery, Manchester (2013).

Individual prints from this installation are for sale. Please contact the artist for further details: mauricecarlin.com/contact/
