Weʼre raising £5,000 to help fund the startup for Fayakunu: a communal workshop and botanical garden, making a safe haven and promoting artistic industry in youths
- Bradford, West Yorkshire
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
The indoor botanical garden will also feature aquaponics systems to showcase urban micro-farming in the 21st century. The garden will compost its own soil whilst growing gourmet mushroom varieties, later growing edible vegetation from the soil.
The art workshops will offer pottery, plaster carving, textile arts & dyeing techniques. The wood & metal workshops offer “build your own...” days, looking to build easels, desks, and even Stirling engine models to teach science principles and applications.
The workshop will offer its service to the community for interior renovation, bespoke design, and general handyman jobs in order to help fund the project.
The workshops will also be used to renovate the building to reduce costs. Either blacksmithing the tools, to populate the workshop or looking to crowdfund the project, as there is much-needed equipment to be acquired in order to establish the workshop.
Once established, the art and cultural workshops will inspire those youths with a more artistic nature whilst also providing a bridge for all age groups to enjoy and learn from each other. The wood and metal workshop provide exciting and productive outlets to the youths, that may use their energy on other “industrious activities,”: whilst also teaching valuable vocational skills in an order to build confidence.
