Gary Fairfull was a trailblazing inspiration and was one of the key influencing shapers that curated Shoreditch and Hackney in the early days...
A story teller and poet, he ran several private members clubs that were the stuff of legend. He was passionate about providing a platform for new up and coming as well as established talent in The Arts. From the visual to the musical he always encouraged those around him to go for it.
Many of you will have incredible stories about Gary - it was impossible to go anywhere with him locally without an array of people of all ages enthusiastically telling you their stories and adventures with him. That's the thing about Gary Fairfull - he belonged to everyone.
A major connector of people, in this next phase he is to be remembered and his endeavours seen by all. We have set this Go Fund Me Campaign up, The Gary Fairfull Foundation , which will initially cover additional costs re any post funeral production and then lay next steps for a full foundation for emerging artists.
Mark Shields, Nick Franco, David Dickie, Adrian Schiller Vanessa Helen Fenton Juan Leal and Alan Miller are currently Team Members - and please everyone get involved!! You can become a Team Member... We want all the passion and drive and love that has been shown about and towards Gary to be reflected.
Some ideas we have are to have a bench, plaque and tree in Shoreditch - and more can be put forwards. We shall ensure that the legacy of Gary shall continue through creative work for all to enjoy and share...
Please give what ever you can and whether you can give or not, please share with everyone...
Thank you xxx
