The UK's first Off-Grid Arts Centre needs your support to assist with its exciting exhibition programme & to help make it 100% off-grid.

by Zig Zag Glastonbury in Glastonbury, Somerset, England

Zig Zag Glastonbury is one of the first major off-grid Arts Centres in the UK.

Located on the edge of Glastonbury, it’s a landmark building, a former sheepskin factory which was a major part of Glastonbury’s tannery industry for over 100 years.

The building has been empty since the 1980s and over the course of 30 years became completely derelict. For the past 5 years the building has been taken over and lovingly restored to it’s former glory, More than 2500 windows have been replaced, floors and walls repaired, stairs reinstated, solar panels & electrics installed and the vast roof made water tight. 

Just four weeks ago the building opened to the public. 

Your support will help Zig Zag to become 100% off-grid - Solar & steam powered.

The funds raised will go towards restoring the steam engine, providing insulation and wood burning stoves for heating the vast space, provide electrics for the entire upstairs exhibition space, pay for floors & walls still needing concrete render & plastering and also assist with the ongoing detailed work to make the space exhibition ready. The support will also provide a major resource for the programme of exhibtions and events into 2019.

We are here on crowdfunder not only to raise funds & support, but also to invite you to a very exiting exhibition to be held this coming November entitled ‘Dark Light’. It will be Zig Zag Glastonbury’s first major group show and aims to put this off-grid arts space on the UK map. 

Zig Zag Glastonbury is a space for exhibtions, performance, talks, workshops and creativity, run by a forward thinking and knowledgeable community. It aims to inspire a new culture of creativity reflected in the now.

Although the building has taken 5 years to get to this state there is still so much to do, we are now reaching out to introduce the space and ask for any support you can offer towards furthering the vision.

We will  be holding talks and performances during the course of the exhibition and these are further rewards for your support. Everything raised will go towards the building becoming 100% off-grid, ongoing cosmetic work to the exhibition & performance spaces and also towards the current programme and ongoing series of exhibtions, performances, talks and workshops in planning for 2019.

Thanks for your kind support.
