fabric and House Of Vans have announced that they will collaborate to raise money for the Farringdon venue’s #SaveOurCulture campaign, with a photography exhibition and fundraiser event taking place later this month (October).
The House Of Vans gallery space in Waterloo, London, will host an exhibition of photography from within the club, featuring the work of fabric’s in-house photographers, including Sarah Ginn, Nick Ensing, Danny Seaton, Anna Mills, Emilie Pria and Evie Williams.
The exhibition will be free to attend between Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd October, with the work on show available to purchase.
The fundraising event at House Of Vans takes place on Friday 21st October, and will feature artists closely affiliated to the Farringdon venue’s Friday night, FABRICLIVE.
DJ Hype, Ed Rush and Optical, IC3, Logan Sama, Sir Spyro, Capo Lee and Discarda are all set to perform, alongside DJs from Bristol bass party The Blast and a number of surprise guests.
All proceeds from the fundraiser and exhibition will go directly to the #SaveOurCulture campaign. You can buy tickets to the House Of Vans event here.
fabric’s #SaveOurCulture campaign also announced a trio of events at London’s Great Suffolk Street venue, where Ricardo Villalobos, Jamie Jones, Seth Troxler, Craig Richards and many more will all spin across three events that take place on Saturday 15th October, Saturday 3rd December and Saturday 10th December.
fabric also issued a transparency statement last month (September), in which managing director Gary Kilbey outlined exactly where donations to the #SaveOurCulture fundraising campaign will be spent. The lengthy statement explained how the first purpose of the appeal is to reopen fabric, but that it also aims to change law and guidance on licensing in order to stop “injustice” happening to venues in the future.
fabric’s #SaveOurCulture fund has currently raised £290k at the time of writing. You can donate to it here.
