Ideas Hub - 2020/21 impact assessment

Ideas Hub - 2020/21 impact assessment

The Ideas Hub has completed their 2020/21 annual Impact Assessment. The Ideas Hub Chelmsford is really grateful to Meadows Shopping Centre for their support. The Art Place opened in October 2020 and supports over 100 local creatives. 

Through commission on sales by creatives and space hire, the Ideas Hub is raising just enough money to cover its bills and overheads.

However, the space is so much more than a shop. It plays an important role in the community and enables and supports:

- The Ideas Hub's projects in schools by providing a place to create their art installations/ creations and storage

- Local organisations and charities through free equipment lending and storage  

- A community space which provides a safe space for many residents in crisis and a space where we improve (and sometimes help to rebuild) lives.

So thank you so much to all at Meadows Shopping Centre for supporting us and the community through us!
