Dr.D (aka Subvertiser) and Underground England have teamed up for this 2nd wave ‘Panicky In The UK’ fund raiser competition. Earlier in the year, they raised £2,000 with BSMT Gallery at the start of the pandemic and now it looks like food banks will be needed even more in the UK.
You can win big and help out people in need! If you donate to the cause, you can be in with a chance of winning: ‘Panicky in the UK’ t-shirt + tote bag + 33 prints from the Dr.D/Subvertiser archive + a £150 shoe voucher from Underground England + a book from the Underground England shop! Use the justgiving link here, and make sure you tick the box to let them get in touch should you win. Draw ends 5th November.
Last year, The Trussell Trust food banks provided more than 1.6 million emergency food parcels to people in crisis. More than half a million of these went to children. It’s not right that people can’t afford the basics. No one should be left hungry or destitute – illness, disability, family breakdown or the loss of a job can happen to any of us. Dr. D and Underground England want to try and end the need for food banks – with your help, this can change.
Dr.d (aka Subvertiser) on the ‘Panicky in the UK’ collection:
“Not being a naturally gifted artist you have to work with what you’ve got, it’s an aesthetic of the punk movement that I think reoccurred with my generations’ illegal warehouse party scene of the late 80’s. One of my old fly posting crew came out with the phrase and I was immediately thinking Jamie Reid, of course. Early on in 2020 it seemed like a rumour that something bad was on its way, but we had no idea how bad it would get.”
