The AiR Centre has been open since October 2016. We are a non-profit organisation, using the arts in many ways, often combining different art forms to achieve new outcomes. Our aim is to encourage people who have not tried art to come and have a go.
The Centre offers a variety of arts and activities for all ages, and provides display and studio space for artists and makers. We run after-school clubs and workshops for adults. For children, art is important as it develops their thinking and learning skills and will raise their attainment levels.
We believe that Ramsgate should benefit from a Centre for The Arts, a place where people can gather together or come alone and explore their creative side as well as being free to express themselves in a positive and/or constructive way.
We wish to promote a universal language of expression using a wide variety of arts and education and by collaborating with other local businesses, community organisations and facilitating local links.
We have established strong links with many groups including the Charlton Athletic Trust, the Liberty Group, Thanet Volunteer Bureau, Mencap, Ramsgate Town Team and Ageless Thanet. Local arts organization Artaha has been running the Carnival Club at the Centre, giving people the opportunity to experience pre-carnival activities.
We work in partnership with Ramsgate Arts and Artaha in producing Ramsgate Festivals. Ones you will have seen include last year’s Winter Lights in December and the Summer Festival and our own in the coming year.
We have developed a fantastic team of volunteers. Without their help we would not have got to year one. We are always looking for more volunteers so please contact us if you are interested in joining our friendly team.
We invite everyone to come through the doors and just have a look at what we have on offer and to meet everyone involved.
