I run a children's charity called Body Action Campaign (BAC) in Wandsworth South London (started in 1997) - We teach filming, Animation, Editing, Puppetry and lots of fun, creative arts based projects mostly for 10 - 15 yr olds - We do a lot of work with Refugee and Asylum seekers, disadvantaged kids & BEM children etc (and all the kids film programes we use are designed to be really user friendly to overcome languge barrriers etc and are great for first time computer users as well) -
However we have recently had funding for the wider community and been doing lots of holiday projects with children, families, carers, Grandparents & OAP's etc. Everybody had a brilliant time and made some amazing short films and animations and some hysterically funny puppet shows - and we would really like to keep the project open to the whole community.
We have a mobile classroom of laptops and special cameras and loads of boxes of props, animation figures, materials, scenery, sets and backdrops for film and puppetry etc - we desperatately need a good venue with storage space (as they currently take up a whole room from floor to ceiling in my house as our funding for yellow storage just came to an end!)
We would be delighted to share a space with another group and are open to ideas and suggestions - we tend to do most of our work in school holidays, half term and week-ends as well as after school on specific evenings - so could be quite flexible as to how we could fit around another group.
We are delighted to be in touch with you at Meanwhile Spaces and would love some help getting a space locally in Tooting Broadway or nearby.
If anyone is interested in sharing a space with us - do contact me as we could potentially put a joint application together for something that could suit both our needs via Meanwhile Spaces.
Or - if anyone already has a space and would like to share it - we would be interested.
Sounds like a brilliant project you are involved in wish I lived in London since your area of work is right up my street...
I am an artist and children's entertainer and ex-youth worker

I had an art gallery space in my local town but I increased footfall and now have no gallery...
Good luck in finding a space
