The Generator Consultation

INTRODUCING THE GENERATOR @ generatorloughborough

The Generator Loughborough is an exciting project to restore and reuse the town’s old College of Art & Design building on Frederick Street. The project, which is currently being developed, hopes to create workspaces for local creative businesses, a café and a new multimedia arts venue for live performances, exhibitions, events, and community activities.

The project is being managed by The Generator Loughborough, a Community Interest Company (CIC) working with Charnwood Arts to secure funding to restore the building & its future activities. A critical part of the project development is to hear from the local community. Finding out how you would like to engage with the space in the future and the types of activities and events you would be most interested in.

We are excited to be undertaking consultation on behalf of the CIC and are asking people to share their views of The Generator Project, via an online survey and online focus groups.
