A new squatted community and arts centre opened today in Swansea town centre, and I am VERY EXCITED.
The most important thing to note at this point is that they're in need of an electrician and a plumber. Do you know anyone who can help?
This article has a couple of pictures and has a few details, if you're interested, and this comment is really helpful:
I am one of "these people" I have been employed and paid taxes for the past 34 years. I love Swansea and am sad to see so many empty properties scarring our beautiful city.
The abandoned Dolphin Hotel building, in the city centre of Swansea, has been turned into a COMMUNITY CENTRE for the benefit of the community from 30 January 2012. It is hoped that there will be a cafe, art, music and alternative therapy workshops... There will be a PRESS CONFERENCE there today, Tuesday 31st of January 2012, at 6pm if you want to find out more. If you would like to get involved there will be a meeting tomorrow at 12.30pm at the Cwtch Community Centre on Whitewalls (off oxford street) or get in touch by e-mail or phone on the number below. EMAIL: CWTCH@GMX.COM Please note that at present the fire alarm doesn't work and there's is a problem with the drainage upstairs, which means the toilets can't be used so the community centre is APPEALING for an ELECTRICIAN and PLUMBER to come and help. Thank you Please forward to friends and family in Swansea. PEACE, JOY, COMMUNITY.
