  • Description

    Description

    I am a female who is passionate and dedicated to implementing positive change. I run a community centre where we offer home-made food and hot drinks on a suggested donation basis. We have a warm, comfy space for people to hang out, read a book, meet new friends etc..... We have free exhibition space for local artists and A gift shop selling all kinds of beautiful things. We host various events including film nights, Open mics and Chai nights and run a range of workshop/ classes such as meditation groups.

    I have eds (a connective tissue disorder), which massively limits my physical ability so it is great to have an extra pair of hands around the place. I have many ideas for creative projects so please get in touch if you are a musician or artist or anybody who feels they could add something to the community centre. I would also be interested in people who can help with marketing/ social media and is good with a camera. Filming/ photographs and handy/ trades people for DIY/ renovation projects.

    I am a performance poet/ rapper and always interested in collaborating. I have recently started to learn the ways of production with the dream of making my own beats and mixes. It would be awesome to meet somebody who has knowledge in this area.

    Between my home, work and personal projects the role I offer is super flexible and can adapt to the needs/skills of the volunteer.

    I'm looking to jazz up my campervan it would be fantastic to find somebody who could help that! Also I'm in the process of renovating the shop/ Community Centre including an outside area so these next few months I would really value working with somebody who were skilled with this kind of work.

    I always have art projects so artists are always welcome:-) I'm also always organising events so appreciate volunteers who enjoy this kind of work.

    Aside from these larger projects any help with cooking/cleaning, shop/ Community Centre work and other general help is a fantastic bonus. :-)
