Calling out for Community Champions:
We loved getting to know you and your ideas for the new community space at the mill over our summer ‘ We are the Mill’ events. We had a lot of fun and got to know some passionate people who love being part of the Mill community and who are eager to make it an even better place to live, work and play!
We are holding two workshops and are looking for 15-20 volunteers to develop ideas into a plan for the community centre space.
Workshop 1: 2nd February 2022 – Site Planning and Looking at case studies for inspiration!
Our architect and Planner will be coming along to start the co-design process placing your voice at the centre of our plans. We will have guidance on the building and planning parameters that we need to take into account in our design and then we need your innovation!
Workshop 2: 9th February 2022 Modelling designs!
The fun bit, getting to create a model of your ideas that the architect will transform into technical drawings and plans.
The sessions will be split into 2 times:
4pm to 5.30 pm – Child session. Looking for next generation of community enthusiasts to give our community space their viewpoint. We are looking for 4 young people to give us their vision!
6pm to 8 pm – teens +, we want our community space to have the input of all demographics of our community so younger or older we want to hear what all generations would like from their community building.
Volunteers need to be available for both sessions as we will be building on your ideas from Workshop 1 and modelling them in Workshop 2. We understand that this is a big commitment but it is a great opportunity to really shape the design of the space for future community use. Snacks, food and tea / coffee and soft drinks will be provided.
The workshops will be held at Ollies Bar @ Unit 1, Hedel Road, Cardiff, CF11 8DJ.
If you are interested in becoming a Mill Community Champion and are available on the 2nd and 9th Of February for the workshops then please message us and we will be in touch on a first come first served basis.
