Help us spreading the love
As a firm believer in the power of creativity to inspire social progress, artFix is always seeking ways to encourage positive change within its community.
As well as supporting creative self-expression, we also want to inspire kindness and communication among people.
Starting February 14, our Spread the Love campaign is our umbrella project to achieve this via two modest but tangible actions at the Café; a Generosity jar and a Conversation Station.
In this way we’ve extended Valentine’s day from its restrictive and solely romantic associations, advocating love and support towards all, strangers and those in need. The initiative advocates generosity as well as communication.
Generosity Jar – Offer suspended coffees/ food with us
Enjoying our coffees/food? Why not spread the love and buy another one for someone you can’t afford it? Simply put a little extra cash or the suspended coffee/food receipt into our jar and we’ll use it for someone in need.
As well as supporting creative self-expression, we also want to inspire kindness and communication among people, especially within our surrounding community in Woolwich.
The Generosity Jar allows for customers to buy a coffee/food for another who may need it. Spend an extra £2 or more and leave your receipt in the jar to allow someone else to enjoy a “suspended coffee/food”. As city dwellers often fixed and anchored to our phones, we often forget to interact with those around us. We seldom strike up friendly conversations or encourage familiarity with those in our surrounding community. Arguably, we have lost a sense of community by restricting ourselves to our headphones and holding ourselves back from integrating with wider society. In this way we’ve also introduced a Conversation Station at the Café in artFix Woolwich.
Conversation Station at the Café in artFix
This station is active between 4-6pm daily to encourage casual or thought provoking conversations between those willing to further connect with their local community.
So please, come down to artFix and enjoy the café/food and gallery space for yourself. Strike up a conversation and contribute towards your wider community.
