Village 101 acts as a shared meeting ground for local people, new talent and industry professionals.
We revitalise disused spaces and disconnected communities by creating a fertile ground for connection and expression, in which people from all backgrounds and levels of artistic development can come together with established virtuosos of the trade to create and share art.
We recognise the transformational power of artistic expression in both individuals and communities and strive to harness the power of creativity for social change.
Village 101 has emerged out of the necessity to rejuvenate local communities and culture as a whole. We have been living in times of unparalleled disconnection, with COVID exacerbating issues of social inequality and feelings of alienation
The pandemic forced us into isolation and ground our artistic institutions to a halt. We have been starved of our connection to each other and the therapeutic and cathartic benefits of art. Amidst the complex and unpredictable cultural landscape of our times, where great art is more vital than ever, it is crucial that we channel the raw power of creativity into re-imagining and re-making the world - into establishing genuine impact.
Village 101 is a testament to how it is possible to create social impact and economic abundance by bringing people together to share their gifts.
By offering a common ground in which people can express themselves, we create the conditions for learning and mutual enrichment... Each individual’s knowledge and passion becomes an ingredient in the nutritious soup of community that nourishes us all… Like all living organisms, we are stronger and happier when we are connected.
A healthy community is an ecosystem that supports and uplifts everyone involved.
In this time of unparalleled disconnection, what we need more than ever are spaces in which we can come together to experience the healing power of creativity and community.
We recognise that everyone has unique gifts and wisdom to offer the world and we create environments that enable people to discover and express their individual genius.
We act as a meeting ground in which these many, varied ways of knowing, believing and living to come together and cross pollinate to generate new insights and innovative growth.
We know that diversity is the hallmark of a healthy ecosystem and we welcome all ages, races, creeds, genders and beliefs.
We nurture ideas from inception to delivery, helping to turn the raw energy of creativity into real-life projects and the real entrepreneurial success that good artists deserve.
We offer insights and artistic direction from our unique, intersectional perspective which is at the front line of the cultural renaissance.

We host events and workshops that facilitate learning and connection.
We encourage artists and community leaders to share their wisdom in our space with regular free workshops for 16-25-year-olds.
We host regular opportunities for people to socialise, release, relax, and enjoy each other with culturally enriching and mind-freeing events.
Our first cultural festival 'Legacy' is being organised and will take place soon! Just one of many exciting events on the horizon.
These are important opportunities for us to showcase the incredible talent and rich connections we have nurtured since our conception
Village 101’s change maker programme is designed to uplift and empower the next generation of young artists to become leaders and innovators by identifying and leveraging core strengths and building strategies for community resilience. We help participants to engage in critical thinking and develop a broader perspective of their social and political impact.
Our workshop(s) explores the use of interdisciplinary arts-based practices, aimed to inform the curriculum, challenge social structures and limiting belief systems. You will gain an understanding of how art can be used as an advocacy tool to raise awareness and create lasting positive change.
By creating safe spaces for unrepresented people to express themselves, we’re able to uncover hidden potential, unearth talent and support it to flourish. Our core values are rooted in harnessing creativity for social change.
