The Clifton Community Arts Centre Ltd was set up in 2013 with the initial intention of redeveloping the Clifton Cinema into an Arts and Community centre for Wellington. Unfortunately, the group were unable to buy or lease the Clifton, but we will soon sign a lease for 1 Station Road, Wellington.
We are looking for volunteers to help redevelop then operate it as an 80-seat cinema and café bar with additional rooms to let out to the community. Currently we have a number of interested parties for the rooms – dance classes, art gallery, circus skills workshop, meeting rooms to name a few.
This project is for the people of Wellington and the wider Telford community, owned by members and managed on their behalf by a board of directors.
We would love to hear from you if you are able to volunteer.
If you are not sure how you can help there will certainly be something you can do to assist us! Below is an idea of what we are looking for:
Phase 1 - the redevelopment phase – we will be looking for:
Painters and decorators, anyone with building skills (electrical plumbing etc), DIY enthusiasts, general cleaners, window cleaners, tea makers, someone with marketing and promotional experience.
Phase 2 – the operational phase – we will be looking for
Café workers, bakers, chefs, servers, front of house, administration, anyone with projectionist skills, event management, cleaning, reception.
The list is endless – and you can be sure we can make use of your skills. If you do not have relevant skills or experience but wish to learn specific skills – we want to hear from you as well, we can buddy you up with someone with experience and you can learn as you volunteer.
Our current opportunities include: Clifton volunteers.
