There is a clear lack of space in West London for artists to embrace their creative hobbies and groups. What we aim to create is a centre that can offer much-needed space for those aspiring artists wanting to develop sustainable projects of their own. A lot of individuals have great project ideas and nowhere to deliver them which is why a space like this is so essential to the London Borough of Hounslow. Crime figures from 2016 dubbed Hounslow Town & Brentford the most dangerous places to live. Children & young adults often turn to crime in the area as a way of alleviating their boredom. Younger siblings copy the actions of their elder siblings involved in criminal activity and there needs to be something else for them to aspire to become. We need a project like this to take shape in our borough so it can give back to the entire community and change the negative portrayal of estates within the borough.

What we'll deliver:

  • Open a Performing Arts Centre
  • Give Back to the Surrounding Community
  • Repurpose a Disused Building

Why it's a great idea:

This project will pack a punch and give back to the community in every shape & form. Community and art spaces have been closing down left, right and centre over the past few years so it's about time a centre like this was established to make the environment a more engaging place to live in. We have a firm presence in our community which is proved here on this petition: https://www.change.org/p/london-borough-of-hounslow-save-arts-in-the-local-community

Steps to get it done:

  • Gain permissions from the council
  • Open to the community
  • Renovate the space into needed specification
  • Secure suitable premises to house the centre within
  • Launch event within the new premises

We would like one of the spaces within the centre to double as a mini theatre with lighting so we can put on a greater amount of productions within the HQ. This will benefit the community as it could be used for a variety of artistic productions.
