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.
