Margate Creative Land Trust (Margate CLT) has appointed six independent leaders to the Board of Trustees to lead its vision and establish Margate as one
Our ambition is to establish Margate as one of the most prominent creative production hubs in the UK.
The story so far...
The project was co-created by the community and local creative practitioners, and the organisation has been established as an independent charity by Thanet District Council on behalf of the Margate Town Deal Board, working with WorkWild, PRD and a group of independent land trust and creative industry specialists.
£6 million of funding has been secured from Central Government through the Margate Town Deal to set up the operation of the organisation; purchase physical space in Margate and provide affordable rents; and deliver community programmes to support inclusive and sustainable practice in the creative industries.
We are currently in the process of recruiting independent Trustees for the charity. The deadline for applications has passed and we will be announcing the successful candidates shortly.
