In October 2020, we were approached by a company called Print Social that specialises in running crowdfunded campaigns for screenprinted tshirts. When they reached out to us, they let us know about an offer they were running in aid of COVID relief where a percentage of their production costs would be donated to a charity of the client’s choice.
And so we hatched a few plans, reached out to a few of our artist friends and created a campaign which offered up six different limited edition tshirt designs created by High Wycombe artists. On top of the money that Print Social donated on our behalf to the charity of our choice (Mental Health UK), we also pledged to donate 10% of our profits to Wycombe Food Hub.
We’re pleased to say that in the end, we were able to sell a total of 55 tshirts, raising a total of £72.88 for our chosen charities in the process. Don’t worry if you missed your chance to grab one, though – we have a limited number of them available on-site and hope to do more campaigns like this again in the future!

Dacarter is a guest artist in residence at Wycombe Arts Centre where he created a piece called Disarray, the first in his “Urban Aesthetics” series. The idea was to spontaneously create the type of thing that can be found on walls all over the world in areas that street artists go to on a daily basis, touching on destruction and creation .
