New £3.7M arts hub opens


Arts and business leaders joined the celebrations at the official opening of the new £3.7 million Krowji creative workspace recently.

The development at Redruth’s Old Grammar School sets Krowji among the top creative communities in the country.

Ever-increasing demand for Krowji space inspired the ambitious business plan: to create a state-of-the-art eco building with 50 new studios and workspaces which would complement those in the Old Grammar School.

Around half of the new studios have been snapped up already – with many more expressions of interest received.

“Krowji is the perfect showcase for the amazing talents within our community,” said studio manager and artist Elisa Harris.

“It’s so exciting to see our fantastic new building standing proudly alongside our historic old schoolhouse – it’s a wonderful image of Cornwall’s rich past, present and bright creative future.”
