Your projects. Our communities. Kent’s recovery.
Quench is a non for profit We want to take Quench Gallery to the next level in 2023 and find new ways to engage with our audience from Thanet and beyond. We will commission a number of new live events, such as workshops, screenings, talks, concerts and performances, in addition to our expanded programme of art exhibitions. We also need to make important improvements to our building to make sure we can deliver our programme for the community to enjoy fully. In particular we want to adapt our entrance foyer area into a shop. This will create a job to sell Quench related merchandise and limited edition artworks that can go towards supporting the gallery all year round. Quench is entirely dependent on fundraising as we are totally not for profit and do not take any commission from art works sold in our exhibitions.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Fundraising will help us to create a more dynamic and diverse programme. In 2023 we would like to cater to a wider range of needs for our local community and help to increase access to art forms that would otherwise be less available locally. We will do this by continuing our youth outreach programme in collaboration with local youth groups, an over 65's coffee morning which will welcome those who find it difficult to access these types of spaces and we will partner with Margate Pride for the second year running to create a dynamic show that welcomes the thriving queer community. If we reach our target, we will also bring dynamic events such as film screenings and music and art performance events to the Northdown road, an area that has often been overlooked in the past.
