Housing and homelessness charity Shelter has announced the second of its Gimme Shelter series of cultural events for Autumn 2017 – 'Gimme Shelter – Art’.
The event at London's Oval Space on 2 October welcomes leading figures from within the UK art scene - fashion designer and creative director Giles Deacon, iconic graphic artist and print designer Anthony Burrill and award-winning performance artist and contemporary photographer Juno Calypso - for a night in conversation. The trio will discuss their work, using art for social change, creative industries in London and the impact of housing on emerging artists and their creativity.
Gimme Shelter highlights Shelter’s core belief that everyone should have a safe, secure and affordable place to call home. Sadly, more people than ever need access to Shelter’s vital services and every day, up and down the country, Shelter provides invaluable support to those struggling desperately, to keep a roof over their heads or living in terrible and often dangerous conditions.
“I’m thrilled to be taking part in Shelter’s Gimme Shelter series of events," said Giles Deacon. "Homelessness is such a significant issue in London and across the country and I’m excited to be working with other talented artists to raise awareness for a great cause.”
