Through our charity, the Vortex Foundation, we have set up a Mossman Fund, in memory of Vortex founder, David Mossman. The aim of the fund is to raise funds in order to put the Vortex into a situation that stabilises the situation of the club but also allows it to move forwards, and in keeping with the spirit of positive community that David started.
Any venue is London is under pressure – rent, rates and similar rising costs. Indeed, the number of live music grass roots venues has declined by 40% over the past decade. But we must also look forwards, improving our sound system, and getting things better resourced for the digital world, for streaming and so on. Also initiatives to help women and BAME musicians move up the ‘jazz ladder’ and similar.
