Weʼre raising £2,000 to raising awareness towards mental health, whilst promoting start up creatives.
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Mental health is an ever-growing issue, one that is often over looked and 'brushed under the carpet' so to speak. It is something that isn't visible and therefore some of the people that are fortunate enough not to be effected by these 'invisible' disorders can't always empathise with people that suffer.
We would like to create a series of events, based around the worlds of art, fashion and music that shed some light on the issues of mental health; whilst also promoting start-up artists, musicians and designers.
The first event of this series will be an introduction into the different sections of mental health. There will be a fashion exhibition, designed and curated by Sarah Hollebon; a designer which has created different outfits based around different mental health disorders. With live performances from Eloise, Bambie and Emma Miller. Visual artwork created by Becky Campbell, Poppy Moon and Ellie Bond take form in posters, animations and a zine with the objective of raising awareness to this topic. With more artists and musicians to be confirmed.
Clubhouse is a platform for start-up creatives. We host exhibitions and events solely based around creative collaborations. We are looking to support as many artists, musicians and brands as possible. We understand that the creative industries are the hardest to make a living from and we want to help people get started and grow as a creative.
We have currently hosted 4 events to date, with the topics of LGBT and feminism. At the LGBT event, we displayed only queer artists and musicians, alongside with drag performances. The feminism event held a panel discussion where the audience could ask questions to woman that have experienced issues within sexism; Char Ellese, the founder of the 'OMG she's bald' movement and Gina Martin, the woman to have recently succeeded to make up-skirting illegal.
