Great ideas created by the community, for the community. Pitch your project by 14th September 2022.
Artspace wants to host an open weekend celebrating 10 years of providing a space for the local community to create art. We hope to launch a programme of free workshops and sessions to take place in January and February 2023. Currently, to pay the rent, Artspace works with many talented local people to offer a wide array of workshops such as sewing courses for adults and young people, family craft sessions, art classes, and craft classes such as papier mache models. We would like to offer stand alone activities and workshops free of charge to our local community so that we are accessible to all members of our community. This would include an afternoon Sewing class for Young People, a free childrens craft session during school holidays and for adults, a sewing Class and Art and Craft classes. This programme of events would be launched at the open day to be delivered during January and February 2023 to bring some winter cheer!.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Artspace strives to offer a space for all members of the local Macclesfield Community and Surrounding areas to come and create, whatever their ability or financial circumstances. We have many volunteers involved in our charity whose roles vary from helping from out at sessions, helping with our marketing and newsletter and keeping the place clean and tidy. For many the volunteering is a way of building up confidence to move on to their next step, managing mental health by providing company and routine and combatting social isolation. We also provide employment opportunities for local artists to run workshops in our space. The busier we are, the more all those who work with us will benefit. By offering a varied programme of free workshops we are providing all members of our community with the opportunity to come and learn a new skill and meet new people and have fun whatever their budget. This is particularly poignant where households are struggling with a cost of living crisis.
