LOVE BEATNIK: One Love Project Rooftop Fundraiser

  • Becky Young
In July I helped produce a low-key but successful fundraising event at Dalston Roof Park for The One Love Project, a grass roots charity providing education and healthy meals for children living in the gypsy communities in Pushkar, India.
The event was a huge success, raising over £1500 of vital funds for the project, and stayed true to the creative and holistic ethos of the charity. Working alongside the wonderful founders of the project, we brought together live musicians, hula hoopers, crafters, DJs and facepainters who collectively embued the 'Beatnik' theme we had chosen.
I worked to source the deal with the venue attaining a late license from the council, as well as designing the artwork and social media content, and liaising with the acts and artists on the day. I can't wait to be involved in the next event, which will hopefully be bigger and better!
