Miranda July's Interfaith Charity Shop
on 05 September 2017
There are some 10,000 charity shops in the United Kingdom, and now—thanks to artist and filmmaker Miranda July and Artangel—there is the first-ever interfaith charity store. The pop-up (which is open from 31 August to 22 October 2017 at Selfridges) is being run and staffed by Islamic Relief, Jewish charity Norwood, London Buddhist Centre and Spitalfields Crypt Trust who will divide the proceeds equally. From there, "each is donating 2.5% of their share to another charity of their choice: Islamic Relief is donating to The Bike Project; Norwood to Carers in Hertfordshire; London Buddhist Centre to Praxis Community Project; and Spitalfields Crypt Trust to Providence Row." Prices and goods are just like regular charity stores, but this execution is more inclusive.
