Garden Room

The Garden Room has been developed for us by The Blooming Youth Collective, a group of young people from Redcar & Cleveland and Middlesbrough who are using our venue as their base. We invite you to enjoy spending time in this ever changing and growing space, sit on the sofa, read books from our library, use our free wifi and have a chat with us about the things that matter to you.

This room will be used by The Blooming Youth Collective to learn and share new skills and to rebuild networks and friendships. The BYC also produces and sells their ‘Blooming Youth Zine’, published quarterly, and is available to buy through the Honest Shop. Also on display here are a few pieces from artist Rebecca Appleby’s ‘Aftermath’ exhibition. 

If you are an artist and would like to know more about opportunities to show you work please ask about our regular drop in advice sessions.

If you are interested in joining The Blooming Youth Collective please have a chat with us.

Ryan Colley; Aidan Emerson; Joe Petch; Sadie Rogers; Beth Smith; Millie Thomas; Ari Kelly; Amy Smith; Darius Morgan; Lennox Norton; Hannah Howell; Mike Townsend.
