Calton Creative Centre
The conception of the creative centre explores the intersection between visual and performing arts, allowing the exchange of skills and interaction. It envisions creative learning and collaboration between artist and community and seeks to encourage accidental encounters by celebrating liminal spaces within the proposal.
The vision for this proposal is for it to be a grassroots regeneration by the community for the community. The theatricality of the Barras and its thriving arts scene have heavily informed the programme and spatial organisation of it.
The performance arts and visual arts block both includes ‘performance’ spaces and classrooms that are open to the public. This is to facilitate the exchange of skills and ideas.
