Hello from all at ArtsSpacelifeSpace,

You are receiving this email because you are on our Pro Cathedral mailing list and as we are now fully underway with setting up a new venture, which is by far the most ambitious project that we have worked on to date, we thought it was high time to give you an update and to find out if you’d still to be kept in the loop with all of our plights and delights for 2008 and beyond.

Since the Pro Cathedral project finished in December, we have been busy negotiating the terms and conditions of our biggest undertaking to date.  Working closely with developers, Urban Splash, we have now secured the old city centre fire/police station formerly known to most as Bridewell, now renamed ‘The Island’  We are currently working to get this incredible site up and running.  When finished ‘The Island’ will house the following amenities

* Affordable studio space for up to 60 creative bods, ranging from silversmiths to puppet makers, sculptors to jewelery designers
* A high profile city centre venue for performing arts and physical theatre
* A gallery/exhibition space
* A cafe
* Rehearsal space for theatre groups and circus companies

This is without a doubt our most ambitious project to date.  As ever ArtspaceLifespace hopes to demonstrate how important it is that buildings in our community are used in a positive, if not necessarily traditional way.  We want to demonstrate the value of transforming derelict buildings in to vibrant spaces.  We are hoping that through our work we will be able to give Bristol City Centre some much needed soul and demonstrate once again, how important it is to the well being of any urban environment that buildings are used in a way that helps to give an area life and sustain the people using it.

If this is resonant with you,
The good news is
There are lots of ways to get involved.
