Bricks will support inclusive growth in our local area, working with existing communities and creatives.
If successful with our tender, we will repurpose the existing buildings of Trinity Road Police Station to support our local communities and grassroots creative activity.
Uses we are currently exploring include:
Community garden/ roof garden
Community/ meeting/ workshop spaces
Community bike workshop
Exhibition/ event - public programme project spaces
Artist residency flats/ accommodation. Space for national and international exchange.
Affordable artist studios - 50+ artist studio spaces
Affordable artist workspaces for collectives
“Room of Requirement” - project studios/ preparation/ rehearsal space
Hot-desking and office space for creative and social enterprise
Artist’s/ local enterprise shop
Community housing provision/ residential provision
Community run solar micro grid on roof
Neighbourhood Policing Facilities (requisite of the tender)
We see buildings being owned by artists and communities as the only way to ensure that these spaces are maintained long term. We don’t want to look back from five years from now and realise that all the creative spaces are now flats and offices.
