ABOUT ARTIST IN ACTION
This humanitarian association has been born out of a desire to help others. We have all been deeply moved by the plight of the millions of refugees and migrants arriving from parts of Africa and the Middle East and war torn Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan. We have been shocked at their treatment and have brought into question the ethics of our supposedly civilised nations as they build fences and close borders. We see through the fear mongering and blatant lies and untruths that saturate the media. We recognise that there is only one race, a human race that inhabits one planet, the earth. We have taken it upon ourselves to raise awareness and practical and financial donations that can be used to aid our fellow humans that are in desperate need of help, understanding and assistance... We are all part of a large network of Artists, Musicians, Technicians, Event Organisers and all round creative types that have come together to pool our skills and resources with the purpose of providing direct aid and action to those in genuine need during this humanitarian crisis that is displacing millions of people across Europe.

overland aid mission
We have the use of a 12 metre long lorry that we are currently working on filling up with essential items and a field kitchen to take Dunkerque from December 17th for 3 weeks.
We will be distributing aid and installing a temporary kitchen to provide hot meals for as many people as possible. We have already collected a large amount of winter clothes, shoes and woolly hats and gloves. Decathlon in Montpelier have donated Tents and Sleeping bags (more required). We still need additional items - professional catering equipment, tables, bulk kitchen ingredients, small back packs, toiletries, torches, nappies, as well as more blankets and tarps. There is a professional catering crew preparing to join us. We are raising funds over the coming weeks from our digital album release and donations to enable us to fill the lorry and also to purchase fresh ingredients whilst there. Once we arrive at our destination we will provide people with a hot meal and 'Action Packs' - containing a selection of essential items listed above. If you can donate for this trip please see a full list of needs on our facebook page or get in touch directly here.
We are now collecting directly for our mission to Dunquerke in December.
