33 HAWLEY STREET, A PROTECTED, PERMANENT HOME FOR CREATIVE WORK IN NORTHAMPTON

The Northampton Community Arts Trust’s mission is to protect and ensure the long-term vitality of the Northampton community through the acquisition and preservation of affordable and accessible space for creative work. Our assumption is that imagination is essential to the creation of a future we will want to inhabit and that a thriving arts community inspires and nourishes such community imagination. It is therefore incumbent on a responsible citizenry to take steps to secure permanently affordable spaces for creative work within a community. Such spaces, as an extension of the public commons, must be fairly managed and their use allocated in such a way as to preserve the space for future generations while ensuring vibrant present use.
