Will you dream with us?
Wow! Thank you all so much for such an incredible outpouring of support and encouragement in our first week. We are over the moon to have reached £10,000 so early on in our campaign! With your support we now feel able to go further and aim for our target of £20,000. While the initial sum will be used for necessary and critical renovations to our current building to create a multi-purpose community arts space - this target would allow us to dream a little bigger.
Over the years our activities have taken place from multiple spaces - our gallery, studios and office buildings. Similarly our Dolphin Arts group, which works with people living with Dementia in Ullapool, has worked from several different locations over the years. We have been fortunate enough to have the support of different venues to make this all possible, but with the loss of our Gallery we now need to think outside of the box.
The initial £10,000 will cover the necessary and extensive refurbishments needed for our office and studios, to create a multi-purpose community arts hub, but in order to create a dedicated space for exhibitions - or even (dare we dream?!) to secure a stand alone gallery in the future - we need to go further. We believe that that we can with your help.
Some of you have reached out with wonderful ideas for how we might create such a space in the future and we want to harness these ideas alongside creating our creative community hub on Market Street. Your ideas have made us dream a little bigger. Will you dream with us?
Please help us keep up the momentum: share our crowdfunding page to people you think would like to support the arts and rural communities, like our posts, keep commenting - your passion, belief and kindness is truly the driving force behind this campaign and all that we do. We are so grateful for your support - let's keep dreaming!
