boom saloon is a global media movement to democratise creativity for good, driven by our international members. We explore the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals through the lens of creativity, across our print publications, online features, newsletters and events. Profits from these support a series of community projects which use creativity to inspire and empower those facing challenges. To date, these have included substance abuse, homelessness, inequality and forcible displacement. Our current community project works to rewrite the story of dementia, amplifying the true lived experience to increase empathy and understanding in a largely unaware public. Our members directly enable this work for just £7.99/ month and join a movement of global change makers shaping a more sustainable future for all.

…and you’ll directly fund our community projects

1 in 2 of us will be directly affected by dementia in our lifetimes; it is currently the leading cause of death in the UK. In spite of this, the general public are largely unaware of the dementia journey and how this can look for an individual following diagnosis. Many people with dementia feel their voice is taken from them and their true lived experience is rarely recognised or appreciated amidst a plethora of sensationalised headlines, medical jargon or scaremongering. Within this landscape, we collaborate with people with dementia and, together, play with words to give voice to their experience. We then share these words across our print publications, online features, newsletters and events – centring lived experience and using this to increase empathy and understanding in wider society.

…and receive a number of exclusive member perks

Our members directly support this vital work for £7.99/ month and enjoy a series of exciting membership benefits in thanks. These include:
