As part of the re-development of 198 Contemporary Arts and Learning we are aiming to raise £30,000 towards the fit out costs of our education and enterprise spaces for young people.

198 Contemporary Arts and Learning is a centre for visual arts, education and creative enterprise. Our work is framed by the history of the Brixton uprisings from which we sprang. It is informed by the need for greater action on equality, and is shaped by demands for more diverse visual arts and more pathways to creative careers. Having purchased the freehold of our home on Brixton's old 'frontline' in Railton Road, we are now redeveloping our building, tripling the space to create an exciting and innovative mix of visual arts, community resource, industry skills training and creative enterprise across three floors. The second floor will be a space for young people, a shared space for arts and enterprise, a platform for launching new creative businesses, and an agency for emerging talent. We want to raise funds to fit out of the youth studios, creating safe spaces where they can flourish.

What we'll deliver:

  • Fit out a media studio for young people
  • Fit out a youth enteprise space
  • Fit out a artist/ maker space for young people

Why it's a great idea:

-Builds on our 32 year history of delivering arts and enterprise programming for young people in Lambeth, creating a brand new space for them to connect, be supported and get creative. -Cuts to Youth services mean there are less spaces for young people locally and more need organisations that can help them. -Young people from BAMER backgrounds are underrepresented in the creative industries workforce -People from BAMER backgrounds are under-represented in leadership positions across the creative industry -Young people from BAMER backgrounds are under-represented in HE and FE creative industry courses
