celebrities helping our Earth

Sharon Davson initiated the Hands Up project to assist endangered species awareness. She invited international singing legend Neil Diamond to launch the Hands Up project with her.

The launch was conducted as a national press event at the Regent Hotel in Sydney on 14 April 1992.

Since then, hundreds of charities across the world have copied Davson's idea for a diverse range of causes.

Davson has personally painted the hands of over 400 world leaders in their fields and celebrity dignitaries, keen to give their support to her creative endeavours helping our Earth. This activity involves a very simple form of art, with participants providing an autographed handprint using colourful paints.

The impressive list of celebrity participants includes:
Paul Newman, James Belushi, Sir Cliff Richard, Sir Nigel Mansell, Pete Sampras, Andre Agassi, Sam Neil, Dame Joan Sutherland, Bon Jovi and the late Sir Edmund Hillary.

Photographs from events where Davson assisted the creation of handprints by these fabulous people and other memorabilia, including some original autographed handprints, now form part of the Davson Arts Museum collection.

Original, autographed handprints by some of these fabulous people, photographs from the events when they created their handprints with Sharon and other memorabilia, now form part of the Davson Arts Museum collection.

It is a great compliment to Sharon Davson, and the power of this initiative, just how many people from many countries have participated with her, and perhaps an even greater compliment, the number that have copied her concept to help a large variety of causes over the years.

Many of these were stimulated by Sharon’s activities in the USA, Germany, South Africa and other places.

During the 1990’s, Davson conducted Hands-up activities through the charity Artists For Life which she founded in 1990 to assist endangered species awareness.

Then in the early 2000’s, through the second charity she founded, 48 Hours Toward World Peace.

Now, Davson periodically continues the activity through the Davson Arts Museum or in conjunction with her other activities.

Internationally and in Australia, as well as prominent celebrities, thousands of adults and children have participated with Sharon and donated their handprints, as their personal visual commitment to greater caring and respect for all Earth’s inhabits.
