At the heart of our project is to create a worthwhile resource that benefits and enriches the area and its people. 'Making Space Camden' will encourage the community to engage with and contribute to the project’s success. This will be achieved through events, exhibitions, workshops, discussion, work experience and Outreach to local groups, schools and organisations by : Working in Fitzrovia within the Borough of Camden, an area with a rich history of the arts, fashion and advertising. Becoming part of the rejuvenation and evolution of the area encouraging growth socially and economically by increasing visitors to come and explore the cultural and retail opportunities offered by the area. Stimulating a reassessing of what a gallery space can do to invigorate the high street, create an inclusive environment and most importantly allow residents a leading role in the projects output. Honouring the area's history and preserving the voices of the community for future generations.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
The wide spectrum of residents, workers and visitors to the space will contribute to the area's evolution and the creation of a overview of the area now by : Creating an environment of learning and participation to facilitate a sense of community, learning of new skills, reconnecting people to each other in an wide-ranging inclusive collaboration. Promoting wellbeing though activity-based visitor relationships, offering opportunities to interact with the venues exhibitions and other visitors, stimulating a revaluation of cultural and social aesthetics in an original way. Advancing creative learning and opportunities for the public, by making an atmosphere of sharing and partnership. Visitors can become active participants interacting with the art on display through debate and creative practice. Adding a new dimension to the experience with opportunities to learn and receive advice directly from professionals. In addition options to work at the space and gain valuable experience.
Steps to get it done:
The Borough of Camden is close to our hearts, Fitzrovia is not only in our name (Fitzrovia Noir CIC) but has deep connections with all three of our founders : Lucy Williams was born there, in the Middlesex Hospital, where we did our first Outreach in 2008, with former staff and patients; Graham Carrick lived opposite the hospital and worked locally; Garry Hunter had photographic studios here in the 90s/00s and still lives in the neighbourhood. Having all lived and worked in the area, we are all aware of the very special community in this unique neighbourhood and we will honour and champion this when fulfilling this project.
