On the evening of Thursday 26th May 2022, Oasis of Peace UK supporters were treated to a truly splendid evening's entertainment at King Alfred Phoenix Theatre, Golders Green, with a very special performance of Kara Wilson's "Art Angel: A Glimpse into the Life of Angelica Kaufmann". In this unique show, Kara assumed the identity of Kauffman, a noted painter and founding member of the Royal Academy and chatted to the audience as if they were guests in her studio; all while painting an oil self-portrait. Encounters with artists, writers, aristocrats, and royalty - including Joshua Reynolds and Goethe - were enthrallingly recounted in a show enjoyed by all.

This was the first time since the start of the pandemic that we were able to bring our supporters and in-person event, and to get things “back to normal” with such a special show was a joy to all associated with the charity.

“Art Angel” was only the most recent example of Kara's extraordinary generosity in dedicating a performance to supporting the work of Oasis of Peace UK. On each occasion, Kara's commitment has raised funds vital to our continuing support of our friends in Neve Shalom-Wahat al-Salam. She is a true supporter and friend of peace, and all trustees and staff thank her sincerely for her efforts on behalf of the charity and the village.

Thank you, Kara.
