Artspace exists for the well-being of Macclesfield (and surrounding areas) residents. We provide a large, open space equipped with arts materials and equipment, free to use. We offer support through involvement in the arts to people experiencing isolation and exclusion, people managing mental health problems or learning disabilities, older people and other disadvantaged people. We help people find confidence and self esteem, share skills and time and provide arts services to the local community. We run various projects and groups, open to people to join in - or people can come and initiate their own arts activities. One project is the creation and production of the parade for the local Barnaby Arts Festival. Individuals, families, schools and other groups come together to build floats and giant puppets, make costumes and banners, music and mayhem. Everyone is welcome. No experience necessary. We are an entirely volunteer run organisation and work hard to raise money to keep going. We run a Friends of Artspace Scheme for regular donors (please enquire). If you want to make a one-off donation this is your opportunity. Help someone find company, confidence and creativity. Art is for Everyone!
