Where it all began...

10 years ago, Sun Pier House CIC was formed by Heather and Ed, to support Medway’s creative industries, provide a base for a community of artists and creative businesses, and deliver community projects and workshops. Because the building is split over three floors with no lift access, we have been unintentionally excluding a large part of our diverse community - but this is where it all changes!



In Spring 2024 we will be opening the doors of Sun Pier House to all people, of all abilities, to create, engage and inspire by installing a lift, as well as 

  • increasing our studio and creative workspaces
  • building The Creation Space: a new, accessible workshop room
  • improving our entrances and wayfinding
  • making Sun Pier House more environmentally friendly.


Making it happen!

We have secured a large capital grant from Arts Council England (ACE) which is incredible - BUT we still have funds to raise.

From the moment we started, we knew that this fundraising effort was going to be a big one. We have held quiz nights, pudding clubs and raffles, you can "buy a brick" or "sponsor a step" but any donation, big or small, will go towards transforming Sun Pier House into an inclusive, accessible and exciting arts space.
