Artwork has made a video plea for donations to fabric’s #SaveOurCulture campaign, ahead of the Farringdon venue’s appeal on Monday 28th November, after their license was revoked by Islington Council last month (September).
Put together with the Night Time Industries Association, the video appeal includes appearances from Andy C, Jon Rundell, Kate Simko, Huxley and many more. You can watch it in full below.
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 £286k at the time of writing. You can donate to it here.
