Marcia Loves Selby Tony!A fundraising project by Marcia Mackey
THE BIG NEWS is that WORK HAS STARTED ON FITTING UP THE BARGE and she's now in Knottingley having steelwork added for the roof.
I've been involved with this amazing project since 2009 and it is now very close to its aim of making a floating, creative arts space on the River Ouse in York - an Arts Barge. This space will be open to residents and the public and will be a wonderful, vibrant creative hub for the city.
Since 2009, The Arts Barge Project has managed to become a central part of the community in York - reaching out and involving many hundreds of people in the arts.
As well as a large number of wonderful and well-attended community events, the project has managed to buy a large heritage barge, Selby Tony, which now has planning permission to become York's only floating community arts space!
So, now we just need to get on with fitting it out and getting those doors open and the public on board...
