Help us create a cultural and community hub at the Wyndham Street Centre!
Riverside is one of the most culturally under-resourced areas in Cardiff. We want to develop an exciting community arts hub at Riverside’s Wyndham Street Centre – a vibrant cultural space, open to all, reflecting the richness of neighbourhoods in our city. Your support will help us re-launch the space and its first phase of activities, making a case for longer term funding and stability. We aim to create a space like no other in Cardiff, supporting diverse communities, right on their doorstep!
How the funding will be spent
We need to raise £8500 to kick start our project – enabling us to refurbish the Wyndham Street Centre, upgrade electrics and toilets, buy decorating materials, furniture, printing equipment, food and catering for events, and develop our first raft of 2019 activities – to include everything from neighbourhood food + film nights to intergenerational print projects. Funds will also help us build a community outreach team to support local neighbourhoods in accessing and using the new space.
How this will benefit the community
Culture can be a force for change when it’s accessible and shaped by all. Your support will help us establish a rare space in the city – a space that responds to its diverse neighbourhoods, with programmes of innovative and exciting arts activities that bring people together. It’s never felt more urgent for culture to respond to the divisions and tensions experienced by so many in society. Please help us build such a space – our aim is to create a cultural space everyone feels at home in.
