Help us Open a Shop!

We have a really exciting opportunity to open up a new shop in East Street and are asking for your support.

The shop will provide a creativCoolTan Arts - East Street Markete space where people can pop in, shop, stay for a snack, join a ‘make art’ session and spend time together.

We will hold workshops, exhibitions and also have the opportunity to sell our exciting CoolTrade products.

We have already received funding from the Peabody Trust to renovate the shop,
but need to raise funds to furnish and decorate it – which is where we are asking for your help.

We have just launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise £22,000 by November for this purpose. You can find more details on the shop, the activities that we want to do and how to donate here:


Please do give what you can and tell all your friends – help us to create this opportunity for the community.
