Brighton Barge Opportunity for Local Charities and Community Organisations
The Goodall Foundation (tGF) is offering to fully fund educational or charitable projects on the
Barge during the 2018 school summer holidays.
Since the Barge relaunched as a non-profit community and youth hub in the summer of 2017, over 20
organisations and community groups have run activities aboard, bringing the space to life. Whether a
regular yoga class or a team away day, the Barge has demonstrated its appeal and value to the Marina
and the city more broadly. The Barge is an asset owned by the Marina who hope that it will continue to
grow into a hub of activity, enabling local community and youth groups and other socially-oriented
organisations to broaden their offer to staff and beneficiaries alike.
“Last Summer’s activities were a great success. We saw over 600 participants take part in a variety of
activities and more importantly we begun to see the endless potential the creative space presents”
says Sunetta Kiarie, Programmes Manager at tGF. The Foundation are helping with the day to day
management of the space and hope to see more young people, families and professionals engage
with the Barge this Summer.
The residency is open to charities and community organisations in Brighton and Hove and will run
from July 25th until September 3 rd . Applicants will have the option to apply for a three-week residency
or the full six-weeks of the holidays. There are two ways to do this:
1. Design a programme of activity that is built on the teams, projects and infrastructure you have as
part of your organisation or;
2. Curate a programme of events, delivered by your team and/or other external organisations with
whom you have partnerships.
Both of these options will be fully funded. TGF anticipate up to £5,000 for three weeks or £10,000 for all
six weeks. The deadline for both applications is Friday 16 th March 2018 at 5.00pm. Find more
