Studio for a Community

CARE has been awarded Welsh Government, EU and Lottery funding to develop Garej y Sgwar - an old industrial plot in Hermon - to create a peaceful, publicly accessible space for creative projects.

We are currently exploring the options for creating a new building from recycled and natural materials, incorporating low-cost energy saving and generation technology into the design, and making an outdoor space to grow food and park vehicles.

The aim is that local people will get involved, use their ideas and skills throughout the building of the project, and learn new skills around alternative building practices and materials.

CARE hopes to work with other local community projects to teach people how to create high quality recordings to capture local histories and create work which helps to encourage behaviour-change in use of energy and resources as well as promoting healthy sustainable lifestyles in general.
