Amnesty International has opened its first ever concept store in Shoreditch, London.
The charity has enlisted a range of British designers and artists to produce art around the theme “freedom of expression.” Works by Stuart Semple, Alexandra Lazar, Corrie Williamson, Jimbob Art Ceramics, Lucy Jay and The New English, as well as other ethical goods, are on sale in the shop.
Situated in Shoreditch’s shipping container pop-up mall, Boxpark, Amnesty’s concept store will host a range of cultural events over the coming year.
Stuart Semple is doing a live painting demonstration on Thursday 1st December.
Although already open to the public, the shop’s official opening is 3rd December – Dizzee Rascal rumoured to be making an appearance. The shop is promoting events through Facebook and Twitter.
