Boom! Collective & Studio repurpose vacant building in Bangor


Boom! Collective & Studio have repurposed the top floor of the former Clinton Cards building on 80 Main Street, Bangor, transforming it from vacant to vibrant. Three creative practitioners, Marianne Kennerley (Multi-discipline designer), Katie Mitchell (Garden designer/illustrator/photographer) and Jo Hatty, (Scultptor/artist) were inspired by their residencies at Project 24 and joined forces to create a workspace of their own for freelance local creatives. 


Boom! Collective & Studios is set up as a social enterprise with five studio spaces and a gallery space, a materials co-op and a creative reference library. They aspire to be a base for the creative industries to meet and share experiences in the heart of Bangor and through repurposing this vacant building, to assist in regenerating the town centre.


Wee Residencies....

Over the 13th,14th, 15th of March, Boom! Collective & Studios are opening their doors and inviting applications for its first Wee Residencies.
Wee Residencies is a collection of sixteen creative residencies taking place in the newly established Boom! Studios. Along with a symbolic funding of £2.00, Wee Residencies will provide access to a Boom! space for a period of 2 hours at an allotted time over the weekend with the outcomes exhibited in the Boom Gallery.
