Welcome to Charity!
David Ummels is a multicultural entrepreneur and curator. He is a member of the Council of the Guernsey Chamber of Commerce and their cultural Ambassador and Head of the Creative Industry. He is also a board member and mentor of Arts for Impact. David is a huge advocate for Guernsey and, as a passionate art collector for more than 20 years, he has an in-depth understanding of the global art economy and key relationships in the art sector.
He founded Art for Guernsey in 2016, a charitable organisation managed by a team of passionate professionals who share a belief in the power of art to achieve their goals. The team believes that Guernsey possesses a very special asset: integrity. It is this that motivates Art for Guernsey to work for the greater good to bring communities together, provide educational opportunities through multi-curriculum projects and life-changing scholarships, promote Cultural Diplomacy and create an artistic legacy for Guernsey. The team has a strong remit to bring art where it is most needed, to inspire people and try to make them happy. Art for Guernsey is driven by a strong desire to create opportunities for islanders to discover high quality art for free, and to create catalysts within the art, educational and charitable sectors.
