LRG on Channel 4’s Random Acts

‘You are taught to be strong, and you are taught to be big, and you are taught to be fierce, and you are taught to throw yourself at other people with everything you’ve got’

Earlier this year, Fanny Hoetzeneder approached London Rollergirls to help them with, ‘Derby Kiss’ – A short film inspired by Riikka Hyvönen’s ‘Roller Derby Kisses’ exhibition, for Channel 4’s Random Acts.

What is DIY Space for London?

DIY Space For London is a cooperatively-run social centre located in South London, just off Old Kent Road. They offer low cost creative facilities, meeting rooms and social space as well as space for screenings, talks and performances. The space works to promote the ideas of mutual aid (helping each other) and cooperation (working together). Providing a welcoming space for everyone, including those whose voices and contributions are not always heard or appreciated, is a top priority for them.

To attend an event, you need to be a member, which costs £2 a year and can be done in a few minutes online: www.membermojo.co.uk/diyspaceforlondon or a guest of a member.

DIY Space For London is open to all ages. Children under 12 must wear ear defenders and any persons under 18 must be signed in and accompanied by a responsible adult member.

Accountability Agreement

DSFL is committed to amplifying the voices of people who, outside of this place, do not always get heard as loudly, or whose experiences and opinions are all-too-often thought of as less important or valid.

They want all our fellow members and the guests they bring along to agree to a way of being, doing and interacting in the space so that we can work together to make some amazing stuff happen.

They call these ideas their “accountability agreement” and they can be found here: www.diyspaceforlondon.org/accountability
