SILENCE OPENS POP-UP RECORD AND BOOKSHOP WITH DJ GILLES PETERSON

Silence is a Pledge 1% company, which means we give 1% of our time, product and profit to charity.

As part of this pledge, we’ve collaborated with music management company You Me Management to produce Look Up, a pop-up record and bookshop curated by DJ Gilles Peterson.

With Look Up, we’re exploring the positive connection between mental health and the arts while raising money for the vital work of mental health charities – you can visit the website here.

Gilles is raising money for Safaplace, an emerging mental health charity that encourages and enables the support of positive mental health and well-being of students through education and awareness. The money raised by Look Up will go towards mental health training for teachers and peer mentoring for students at Stoke Newington School.

Look Up is open from September 24th to the 30th at the Edwards Lane Gallery, which is behind Stoke Newington library. We’re also hosting gigs at nearby venue The Old Church and a closing party at the Five Miles nightclub in Tottenham. Gilles has curated the albums, books and artwork we’re selling at the shop. He’s also selected the guests we’re interviewing at the shop, the artists performing at The Old Church and the DJs playing the closing party at Five Miles.

You can buy tickets for all the events on Dice.

You can read more about Look Up in these articles on the Evening Standard, Hackney CitizenClash, DJ Mag, The Vinyl Factory , DIY, Location Location, The Quietus, Pledge 1% and Mixmag.
