What might you do there?

– a workshop to make things. There is plenty of scrap wood and a stock of screws and nails. There will soon be workbenches and some cool design for making small furniture items and planters.
– an airy performance and rehearsal space for music dance and theatre
– a  dry gathering place for talks and neighbourhood parties- an adaptable showroom space with indoor and outdoor exhibition space- a makeshift cinema with seating and projection wall fed by the solar power on site
