Displaying & Promoting Your Work

Calling all artists,  photographers, sewers, jewelry makers and creatives.
Creative Space launching soon within the Providence Community Centre will enable you to:-
  • Static display to Promote non-perishable, handmade or produced, unique pieces of work
  • Sell works via pop up shop
  • Share your knowledge and teach others by providing classes and workshops. (And if you aren’t sure if you can run a class, we can support you build your skills and confidence along the way).
  • Studio space
This space will link into the new business incubator space, so if you have ever made something and thought, would this sell? how much would I sell it for? Here is your chance to find out and get support along the way. Or if you have an existing product that just needs some local exposure this is also the place for you.
This is a community initiative to help support and grow culture and arts within the region and there is no cost to be involved.
You are also invited to complete an Expression of Interest Form.
You are also invited to express an interest in delivering workshops to the community.
