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.

Planning application reference: 20/1191/PA

Find out more about the main contractors we'll be using: Ty Pren and Hempcrete Cymru

The aim is that local people will also get involved, to use their ideas and skills, and learn new skills around alternative building practices and materials.

CARE hopes to use the Studio in our work with other local community projects - for example for art exhibitions, for capturing local histories, and creating work which helps to encourage behaviour-change in use of energy and resources as well as promoting healthy sustainable lifestyles in general.  The studio could also be space for practical creative work where wellies are welcome... what would you use it for?
