There may be trouble ahead…

By Karen on Friday, March 22nd, 2013

There is no doubt that we are in the grip of a prolonged recession, and after the latest budget it doesn’t seem to be getting much better.
Things aren’t looking great here, either as we have been knocked back for yet another pot of funding.
And my own funds, in waiting for these rejections, have run dry. Drier than dry. No food in the fridge kind of dry.

So, where do we find ourselves apart from backed very firmly into the wall??

We have the space, we have the ideas but we don’t have the artists yet. Our options are to soldier on, to grit our teeth and continue the restorations on an even tighter budget… or we fold, close the doors and walk away.

What next for the building if that is the case? The work we have done so far has probably given it a few more years, but the boards will go back on and it will be dark again. We need help. We need curtains, flooring, paint and painters. We need advertising, plumbing and firewood.
But most of all we need art, and we need artists and crafters to make this space their own as i have done. We are offering a unique opportunity to collaborate, and work, and create we just need a little effort. I am one person, we are three people. We need more, or this project won’t survive. It is as simple as that.

There are some tough choices to be made and i should know which way i’m going to jump by Monday.
If you can help, in any way whatsoever then please get in contact.
