A host of bands to appear in free Shelter exhibition
The bands, along with Jarvis Cocker and Fightstar have been pictured sitting down by homless charity Shelter to raise awareness of the fact that over a million British children dwell in bad housing.
The shots of the stars and other celebrities, plus 5000 pictures from members of the public, will appear in a free exhibition taking place at The Gallery @OXO on London’s South Bank from March 29 until April 2.
All the shots feature the subjects sitting in Shelter’s distinct red chair.
Speaking about the campaign Richard Ashcroft explained: “Over one million children in this country face a bleak future trapped in overcrowded, unfit or emergency housing which is wrecking their lives. A safe, secure home is just a distant dream for them.”
Exhibition goers will be able to join the campaign by having their picture taken in the red chair as well.
