This project was funded on 21 Aug 2017!

There are many wonderful youth arts programmes at Hoxton Hall with a large number of local participants from 7 years to 19 years. As the programmes have grown we now need more capacity. We have listened to our participants who want to have more digital art and music recording classes, workshops and general hang out space. We have two physical rooms available either side of a lovely unused courtyard, but they are in disrepair and not used. We need to decorate them, make them useable, buy the furniture and install infrastructure, hardware and software. We would then like to open our facilities to other members of the community in the evenings and during the day and offer specific media skills training for young adults. All our programmes are FREE. Hoxton Hall is a working theatre and has committed and qualified practitioners who can keep the programmes running - we just need a capital injection to make these spaces available.

What we'll deliver:

  • Make the rooms accessible
  • Decorate the rooms
  • Put furniture in the rooms and the courtyard
  • Put computers and recording equipment in the rooms
  • Install software for digital art, webdesign, music recording and music production
  • Run regular programmes for 7-19 year olds plus other members of the community
  • Maintain a youth hang out space
  • Run daily school holiday programmes
  • Keep all programmes and access FREE

Why it's a great idea:

This idea was inspired by the tragic events of a local young person who was stabbed to death nearby. The death was a result of gang rivalry that had partly been attributed to the use of diss tracks to insult each other. In response we wanted to create something positive that could have a useful impact on the lives of local young people. It is a great idea because: -It makes use of unused space in a beautiful heritage landmark venue -It has been developed by the local youth participants - it's what they want -It offers useful training for future employment -It offers a safe space for young people to hang out -It offers a creative outlet for experimentation -It offers opportunities to meet new people and make new friends -It creates some new jobs and volunteering opportunities -It helps to boost self esteem and independence

Steps to get it done:

  • Commission lockable worktop / work desk cabinets for the computers
  • Volunteer clear out day
  • Volunteer decoration days
  • Install technical infrastructure and cabling
  • Install lockable worktop / work desk cabinets
  • Install computers and tech equipment
  • Install soundproofing
  • Install firedoors
  • Install general furniture
  • Purchase equipment
  • Open rooms for test group
  • Open rooms for programmes
