Support from the Architectural Heritage Fund, the Ernest Hecht Charitable Foundation and individual donors has allowed us to begin the process of renovating the building.

In the meantime, support from National Heritage Lottery Fund, Arts Council England, Kent County Council, Kent Community Fund and the Colyer Fergusson Charitable Trust has enabled us to begin work with our local community.

Our vision is to celebrate Cliftonville as a vibrant and diverse neighbourhood by providing an accessible space which welcomes, includes and brings together its many different communities.

Our intention is to be a resource for local people as well as attracting visitors from throughout East Kent and beyond through a relevant and engaging cultural programme ranging across all art forms.

We will co-create work with our neighbours, making sure we respond to their voices – especially those from traditionally marginalised communities.

We will also ensure that not just the heritage of the building is preserved, but that the Jewish experience of diaspora and displacement enables us to empathise with other dispersed and displaced cultural groups.

Through empathy, respect, inclusion, collaboration and open-mindedness, we want to make Cliftonville a better place for everyone.
