Amnesty International’s Concept Store
Proving that charity is still an issue close to creative hearts (especially close to holiday season), global human rights organisation Amnesty International has enlisted a troupe of British creatives to launch its first concept store.
The store has been curated by online arts and gift shop Culture Label to coincide with Amnesty International’s 50th anniversary, and will be located inside Boxpark – a soon-to-be-opened pop-up mall in East London’s creative hub, Shoreditch. Contributors include jewellery designer Corrie Williamson, and artist/curator Stuart Semple.
The pop-up will sell ethically produced gifts and homewares inspired by freedom of expression, and will act as an extension of the organisation’s online store, which traffics recycled and fair-trade items to help fund Amnesty’s international aid projects.
The temporary store – open throughout 2012 – will join a number of fellow retailers at Boxpark, the world’s first pop-up mall, scheduled to open on 3 December 2011.
