We are raising funds for the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust, YF Studios and QTIBIPOC Emergency Relief & Hardship Fund.
Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust
Stephen Lawrence was a Black British teenager from South London who was murdered in a racially motivated attack in 1993. The fallout from the case resulted in cultural changes of attitudes towards racism and the police, the law and police practice.
A 1998 public inquiry into Stephen’s death and the way it was handled by the Metropolitan Police concluded that the force was institutionally racist.
Since then, the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust has been working with young people from disadvantaged backgrounds to inspire and enable them to succeed in the career of their choice. They also work to influence others to create a fairer society in which everyone, regardless of their background, can flourish.
YF Studio is a purpose built creative space in Brixton, south London, launched by The Basement in 2018. It was established to provide young people in the local area free access to creative arts workshops and events, as well as providing an open space where they can drop in to pursue their own independent creative endeavours.
YF Studio also serves as a safe space that other community organisations can use to host a range of events and activities that utilise the space and its creative arts facilities.
Access to creative arts education and the creative industries are under severe scrutiny at the moment for lacking diversity and inclusivity. By working with young people from the local area, the majority of whom are black, YF Studio aims to provide skills, access and advocacy to address this imbalance.
QTIBIPOC Emergency Relief & Hardship Fund.
