Crowdfunder to Save the TAAG Arts and Community Centre

Our Crowd­fun­der is to buy the TAAG Gallery & Com­mu­ni­ty Cen­tre. We had raised £100k before lock­down but now we have to move our appeal online.

If you have visited Teignmouth you will probably have visited the TAAG Arts and Community Centre in the town's Arts Quarter.

The Community Centre was created from a derelict commercial garage 10 years ago and since then has been serving the local community with arts and well-being workshops, galleries and related facilities. The Council planned to demolish it as part of their development plans but strong local support led to the building being offered to TAAG to buy.

This was agreed and fundraising was progressing well with half of the estimated £200k needed raised by the middle of March. Then, with lockdown, all our conventional fundraising stopped. As a result, we have had to switch our efforts to a Crowdfunder campaign to raise the remaining funds. We have reviewed our plans and reduced the amount we are seeking to the minimum £60k that would allow us to reopen & to support the local community when the present restrictions are lifted.

We need your help to ensure that we can reopen - By sharing our Crowdfunder page on social media, by email, and any other means, to friends and contacts; and by contributing to our appeal. We are a registered charity and the TAAG building will be held in trust for the community when the purchase is completed - Thanks from the TAAG Trustees
