Musicians and artists unite for the Mackintosh Fire Fundraiser

Musicians and artists unite for the Mackintosh Fire Fundraiser

Students from Glasgow School of Art are preparing for the mother of all fundraisers to support those affected by last month's fire.

On May 23, GSA's Mackintosh building was ravaged by flames which destroyed the library, students' work and part of the building, considered one of the world's greatest examples of new style 20th century architecture.

A team of up to 200 Scottish Fire and Rescue crew managed to save around 90% of the structure and they protected up to 70% of the contents.

In the wake of the fire, the Art School will host the first of many fundraisers tonight to support the school and the students.

Academic staff confirmed that some students lost all of their work and want to ensure that they are properly supported.

Funds from the events will go towards those affected by the Mackintosh building fire, with immediate assistance going to those in most need.

The GSA Student Representative Council will be on hand to decide the allocation of the funds on a case-by-case basis.

New studio space is also required by the fine art students and other departments based in the Mackintosh building.

In order to generate funds, the Art School will be assembling a selection of friends, alumni and current students to come together for a four-hour fundraising session tonight.

There will be DJ sets from the likes of Glaswegian house and techno collective Dixon Avenue Basement Jams, Errors, Silicone Soul and WERK.

Art School alumni such as LuckyMe's S-Type, Konx-om-Pax and Dema will be providing sounds this evening too.

There will also be an appearance from Franz Ferdinand drummer Paul Thomson, who used to be a nude model for the art school.

The poster, designed by former GSA graduate David Shrigley, includes all the details of tonight's event - and proves that with the help of the community, the students can pull together and recover from the disaster.

Entry is only £5 plus a donation and Final Year Fine Art students get in for free - check out the Facebook event page and get your advance tickets from here. There is also an online fund if you can't make the event tonight.

Will you be heading along to show your support for the GSA students? Tweet us @STVGlasgow or contact us via our Facebook page.
