The lovely people at 19 greek street have just launched a great initiative to help support people or organisations working on altruistic and/or ethical projects.
Over the past 3 years, 19 greek street have run a series of carefully-curated exhibitions maintaining a high ‘niveau’ of good taste while tackling important issues in ethics and sustainability.
Furthermore, the unassuming soho townhouse has occasionally played host to private, client-commissioned events such as fashion presentations, press-launches, media events, exhibitions and more. Wallpaper Magazine, GQ, Aveda, Manolo Blahnik and Levi’s are only a handful of names which have been showcased in the space.
For 2016, the gallery is committing to donate 5 event hires absolutely free (of 2-3 days each) to people and/or organisations working on altruistic and/or ethical projects. The new, charitable initiative called “Space for progress” aims to support the work of ethical pioneers and help drive awareness to the important issues they raise. Each event package awarded has a market value of approximately £14,700 based on 19 greek street’s hire rates. .
HOW TO APPLY:
Send a brief of your project or business by tuesday 22nd December to the email address firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject heading “Application for space for progress”. Please note that applications by post will not be accepted. As well, there is no specific template to the brief. You are invited to simply tell us everything you think we need to know from ‘who is involved’ and ‘how long have you been running’ to ‘who is supporting you’, and especially ‘how this idea will advance the world’.
15 projects will be short-listed and we will be holding one-to-one interviews via Skype to get to know more about you and your project.
5 final winning projects will be selected and be hosted absolutely free in our gallery in 2016.
Some terms and conditions for consideration:
Event dates are subject to availability and final dates will only be confirmed 3 weeks before the start date of the event.

A security deposit of £1000 will be held in an account (either a paypal, or third party) and will be released after the event.
All participants will need to have public liability insurance by the time the event takes place.
