The latter has provided exhibitions for a very broard spectrum including: The Somalian Youth Project, Big Issue, Burning Candy Crew, Amnesty International and of course Dale VN Marshall’s ROOM 101 to name but a few. Whilst the former also a Non Profit based organisation offers a range of Clothing, Household Goods and Books all for free to the Community, Local Homeless Charities are now reffering their clients to the shop. When you consider the welfare cuts now taking place as well as funding being slashed in the Arts, these buildings are providing an even more vital service than ever.
