Resort is a not-for-profit arts organisation in Cliftonville, one of the UK's most deprived wards. We are moving to new premises in September 2021. Part of our vision for the new Resort is Make Space, a facility for practical workshops and arts education. Make Space will bring together arts professionals and the local community to create unique opportunities for learning and collaboration. Make Space will contain specialist equipment, sinks, storage, drying racks, tables & seating and a display area. There will be accessible toilets and a kitchen area. This will be a flexible, multi-purpose education space for a multitude of activities across the arts. Our first six months of programming will include 12 free community workshops, with a focus on local young people and families.

What we'll deliver:

  • 2 x large project tables
  • Tables and chairs
  • Drying racks
  • Storage cupboards
  • Art materials for 12 community workshops
  • Staffing for 12 community workshops
  • Workshop leader fee for 12 community workshops

Why it's a great idea:

Make Space will benefit our members, the local community and the local economy. We believe creativity should be at the heart of education and available to people of all backgrounds and at all stages of life. Make Space will provide opportunities in three main areas: Professional development for arts practitioners. A youth programme targeted at local young people. Adult education for lifelong learning. We particularly want to work with the local community in Cliftonville, building on the Athelstan Road Project, which engaged with disadvantaged young people and families. The programmes we run in Make Space will mean we can continue to employ a part-time Engagement Specialist as well as offering employment opportunities to Resort’s members and visiting arts professionals. Our adult workshops bring visitors from all over the UK and abroad. This has a direct benefit to the local economy, as many bring partners and families. Make Space will allow us to build on this legacy.

Steps to get it done:

  • Fit-out of Make Space
  • First workshop at Make Space

We will work closely with other local arts organisations to ensure we are offering the best value for local residents and to avoid cross-over with existing workshop and education programmes.
