An Uppingham born craftsman, who says he was greatly influenced by the now defunct Uppingham Cellar Bar, has produced an exciting proposal for a new youth and community creative arts project in Uppingham.

The Daisy May Studios would have a suite of creative rooms covering use of social media and engagement, dance, music production, vocal recording, art and design work, printing and photography. The project would offer creative work placements for young people and volunteer opportunities. Operating costs would be in part covered by the Studios undertaking work for local businesses and hiring out its facilities.

By collaborating with two national youth charities, the Daisy May Studios would offer Dragon's Den style grant aid opportunities for Rutland youngsters hoping to pursue creative ideas and projects. The Studios  would also offer bookable community education facilities.  Finally, it is proposed to highlight the creative achievements of young Rutlanders in the Studios by showcasing their work in a new Studios Magazine. This will be a quality product  published every 4 months and distributed around Rutland and to the 50 most wealthy streets in the UK. 

The project proposal is to be discussed this week by Uppingham Town Council, Uppingham First, the HealthWatch Youth Team  and the Rotary Club of Uppingham. A copy is also being forwarded to the county's Youth Council, Arts for Rutland and Rutland County Council. A detailed Business Plan is being prepared to secure funding for the project.

Celebrating the Arts in Uppingham, a black tie charity event organised in the internationally renowned Goldmark Gallery by the Rotary Club of Uppingham, has been declared an outstanding success by those attending and is set to become an annual event.

Following an introduction to two exhibitions on the work of artist Dora Holzhandler and potter Clive Bowen by gallery proprietor  Mike Goldmark, the 56 guests had dinner in The Falcon Hotel. It is intended that future events will showcase other dimensions of the arts in Uppingham.
