We are currently temporarily occupying the space at the old Vintage Warehouse at 84-88 Lower Parliament Street, Nottingham, NG1 1EH.
We wish to make this occupation a permanent one. Our primary use for the building would be to use it as an education facility for young people in the Arts and it is also our intention to provide many smaller spaces that are rentable at low cost to Nottingham based designers/craftespeople/artists and performers within this buiding.
The idea is to nurture young creatives through the difficult process of learning their skills and provide them with enough support to set up their own creative businesses which can be incubated through the low cost rent of the smaller spaces. The main part of the building would be a flexible hub for creative entrepeneurs and other members of the public as well as a performance, exhibition and retail space.
The building needs to be granted a change of use from the current retail only use to a multi-functional one and needs major investement from the Arts Council to make it fit for purpose. As a smaller company and not one of the Arts Council's National Portfolio Organisations we need your help to petition the City Council for the change of use and to persuade the local Arts Council that the facility is needed.
Please sign here to support local artists and businesses.
We, the undersigned, wish to add our support to the scheme to make the Vintage Warehouse a permanent space for Artisits/Designers/crafts people and performers.
