How we came to build a permanent arts space in Nelson town centre.

After the success of the first Crash residency, I realised the massive need there was for a meeting point for creative people in Pendle. When we first proposed the idea a scary amount of people told us that there are no creative people in Pendle and that we'd never fill our studios. However... we had 4 studios filled before opening and all 7 filled 6 months in. We've got a full programme of events, exhibitions and workshops led by local people and our community local artists has a place to meet and to be visible.
