Students ‘Takeover’ at Independent Arts

On Saturday 19 November, seven students from Carisbrooke and Medina College organised and facilitated the most amazing Takeover Day at Independent Arts.

Our determined team rose to the challenge and took on the responsibilities of Hub Manager, Workshop Coordinators, Fundraisers and Hub Coordinators all in response to our incredible Biosphere project. They managed to organise some fantastic workshops, sell a range of merchandise and organise some fabulous live music, courtesy of our wonderful VI Form music students.

They were joined on the day by a group of incredibly talented fashion students, from The Island VI Form, who set up a pop-up shop displaying the most beautiful handmade tote bags.  They were also joined by Island Artist Pete Bradley who very kindly gifted us his time by creating a wonderful window display that members of the public were able to join in with.

The Hub saw 459 people through the door on Saturday, a new record for the local charity! 

We are so very proud of all the students involved and we cannot wait to work with Independent Arts again.
