The Crescent Arts Centre

Call Us a C.A.B! The Crescent Arts Bus appeal

CAC delivers successful outreach projects in Belfast communities, however we want to offer groups the opportunity to take part in projects within the centre. Since many have difficulties traveling, we require a disabled-access minibus to enable participants to utilise this dynamic, neutral space.

Location

Situation

Currently the Crescent Arts Centre does not have the means to provide consistent, disabled access transport for community groups and schools who may not normally have the opportunity to access the centre. Although CAC’s current projects are making an impact within the community, bringing groups to a neutral space would further promote cultural exchange, decrease isolation and increase participation for disadvantaged individuals in the wider community.

Solution

Having access to a designated minibus will enable the current and future groups we work with to come to the centre to showcase the outcomes of their creative projects to a wider audience. This will also give the groups a chance to directly engage and feel a sense of ownership of the space. On average we work with 20 groups per term which we aim to engage in some aspect of the centre - whether its participating in other activities or supporting other community groups’ projects.
