The Up Creative Hub


The Community asset that

is creatively resourceful

to make the changes

the planet needs.

Your Creative Community

Your multifaceted arts space is uniquely positioned within a disused rental unit in the busy Ankerside Shopping Centre, creating a positive place from a negative space.

We seek to prove that these unused spaces, seen across the country, can diversify to include galleries, community hubs and safe spaces making them town centre destinations that people want to visit.

The Local Arts Base (LAB) provides a welcoming space for all community members, we are accessible as we can be found right in the centre of town.
