Since the Barge relaunched as a non-profit community and youth hub in the summer of 2017, over 20 organisations and community groups have run activities aboard, bringing the space to life. Whether a regular yoga class or a team away day, the Barge has demonstrated its appeal and value to the Marina and the city more broadly. The Barge is an asset owned by the Marina who hope that it will continue to grow into a hub of activity, enabling local community and youth groups and other socially-oriented organisations to broaden their offer to staff and beneficiaries alike.
“Last Summer’s activities were a great success. We saw over 600 participants take part in a variety of activities and more importantly we begun to see the endless potential the creative space presents” says Sunetta Kiarie, Programmes Manager at tGF. The Foundation are helping with the day to day management of the space and hope to see more young people, families and professionals engage with the Barge this Summer.
The residency is open to charities and community organisations in Brighton and Hove and will run from July 25th until September 3rd.
Applicants will have the option to apply for a three-week residency or the full six-weeks of the holidays. There are two ways to do this:
- Design a programme of activity that is built on the teams, projects and infrastructure you have as part of your organisation or;
- Curate a programme of events, delivered by your team and/or other external organisations with whom you have partnerships.
Both of these options will be fully funded. tGF anticipate up to £5,000 for three weeks or £10,000 for all six weeks. The deadline for both applications is Friday 16th March 2018 at 5.00pm. Find more information and the full application pack at http://medium.com/@theGoodallFdn
