A nationwide venue-powered fundraiser on International Dance Day supporting War Child’s vital work in conflict zones.
Words by TRTD
29th April is International Dance Day – a global celebration from UNESCO honouring the power of dance in all its forms.
To recognise the club’s contribution to worldwide dance culture and its collective force for good, The Right To Dance presents Dance For Good. Returning for its second year, the nationwide venue-powered fundraising initiative unites dancefloors across the weekend of 29th April, in support of War Child’s vital work in conflict zones.
Participating venues and promoters are raising money through a range of methods, from bar profits to guestlist donations, special fundraisers to t-shirts. Browse your local venue below to see what they have planned for DFG and how you can get involved: Brixton Electric // Cobalt Studios // Colours Hoxton // Corsica Studios // Dalston Den // Dalston Superstore // EartH // fabric // HERE at Outernet // HiFi // Imaginarium // Lafayette // Patterns // Queens Yard Summer Party // Omeara // Phonox // Prince of Wales // Ramsgate Music Hall // Scala // Soho House // The Carpet Shop // The Cause // The Jazz Café // The Love Inn // The Lubber Fiend // The Marquis // The Mill // The Social // The Volks // TOLA // Village Underground // WIRE // XOYO
If you're unable to join in person, you can also support Dance For Good through buying a limited edition t-shirt made in collaboration with Everpress and Indonesia artist Muhammad Fatchurofi. The Khruangbin and Bandcamp collaborator has kindly donated an illustration from his acclaimed catalogue, harking back to halcyon days of the Second Summer of Love and zines like Slack who memorialised the acid house movement with their vibrant, peace-loving imagery. 100% of profits from sales go to War Child, with Everpress donating an additional £1 for every item sold.
Purchase the tees from War Child's Shop For Good until 9th May. New and existing TRTD members receive 20% off, with the discount code available from the members portal.
