Look Up is a pop-up record and bookshop, series of interviews and live shows curated by Gilles Peterson that is exploring the positive connection between mental health and the arts.

The world-renowned DJ and record label owner is raising money for Safaplace, an emerging mental health charity set up by Stoke Newington School and Sixth Form.

Selling hand-picked albums, books and artwork from the Worldwide FM broadcaster himself, the event takes place at The Edwards Lane art gallery, just behind Stoke Newington Library.

The programme will feature interviews at the shop including, Goldie, Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy, James Lavelle and many more… There will also be live performances at The Old Church and the DJs playing the closing party at Five Miles.

Speaking to Hackney Citizen newspaper last month Peterson explanied: “There’s never been a more important time for the creative community to support social issues and the existing institutions that are under pressure.

“Safaplace is a charity that deals with issues that I feel strongly about and I’m keen for the Look Up store to help raise awareness for this important cause.”

The Look Up Pop-Up will take place between 24th-30th September. Head here for more information and a full schedule.


All proceeds will go to Safaplace – donate here.
