    Weʼve raised £12,630 to fund the Protect Passing Clouds For Life campaign

    Dalston, United Kingdom
    Funded on Friday, 19th August 2016

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    Passing Clouds is a community music venue and arts centre that has been at the heart of Dalston’s multicultural arts movement for the last 10 years. Now the much-loved music venue is under threat from property developers Landhold Developments who attempted to illegally and forcibly evict them from the building on Thursday 16th June (video below)

    We have launched a petition and a full-power press campaign to protect our beloved venue, and need to raise as much money as possible to enable us to fund our fight against the developers.

    All funds raised will be spent on bringing in professional PR and legal support, printing costs, feeding and transporting volunteers and interns, getting extra security for the building, and generally pay for the costs of confronting the malignant behemoth of capitalism.

    By donating to this cause and helping to protect Passing Clouds, you will be helping us win an historical victory on behalf of the arts against the corporate behemoth that threatens to destroy our industry, our livelihoods, and the heart and soul of the UK’s vibrant and diverse culture. You will also be showing support for a wider cause, that of making a final stand against the aggressive development of London by property developers determined to destroy the life, joy and loving communities that make life in London worth living.
