Pollination is a South London-based nonprofit platform aimed at removing barriers to entry in the music industry.
By Veronika Kailich
Pollination has recently launched a phased campaign titled Open Culture: No Borders in collaboration with an assortment of artists, producers, DJs, designers, and writers.
The project raises money for Kent Refugee Action Network, an organisation supporting young refugees and asylum seekers in the UK. The campaign includes a risograph poster series, a compilation release, and a live event.
Starting on 15th October, four illustrators have each responded to a stanza in a poem written by Fiona Glen and turned it into a risograph print design. The prints are currently available for purchase via their Bandcamp page and website. The risographs are a limited 200-print series.
On 5th November, the release of the full compilation with all 22 tracks will go live on Bandcamp. Currently, the preorder is available, with two tracks to download on Pollination’s Bandcamp page.
Stay alert for their upcoming event on Sunday 24th October. Pollination will be hosting a 10-hour event at TOLA in Peckham, London, where their prints will be sold. Featured artists include Al Wootton, Sofie K, Ifeoluwa, Local Group, and more.
