Could There Be an Arts Centre For Ealing in 2010?
Growing optimism that the dream could become a reality
Ealing Arts+ Leisure has taken up the challenge, set out at the beginning of the year by Save Ealing Centre, to establish an Arts Centre in Ealing Town Hall.
Discussions have been held with the Regeneration officer and Council leader, Jason Stacey, who has given his approval in principle for the scheme. John Hummerston, chairman of EA+L, said he is optimistc that 2010 will see real progress in discussions with the Council and getting this project off the ground.
The plan is to re-locate the offices in the town hall and free up some rooms for arts purposes (music, painting, drama, crafts, poetry, literature, etc,) and to significantly expand the arts provision in the centre of the borough.
Ealing Arts+Leisure intends the Ealing Arts Centre to act as a hub, liaising with other organisations (Questors Theatre, TVU, Community Centres,etc.) to create more cutural activities in the borough.
