Bounce Back Arts are a creative, community-led, cultural regeneration group formed by like-minded people in Weymouth, Dorset, focused on the past, present and future of people and place.
Bounce Back wants to harness the views of the community, about the places it loves, and to make sure that local people’s thoughts and feelings influence decisions around change in our local public realm. Bounce Back believes the community holds the key to unlocking the true potential of Weymouth & Portland, for both local people and visitors to the area to enjoy.
Bounce Back Arts is leading an initiative to create a temporary, mobile urban room for the Borough. Because of the differences and distances between the Borough’s communities, Bounce Back feels that a mobile facility – or ‘Moving Space’ as we are calling it – would be better suited to local need than a static building in either Weymouth & Portland.
Using the Moving Space, Bounce Back wants to visit communities affected by change and to stimulate discussions and projects about the past, present and future of our local areas. The Moving Space will enable Bounce Back to move freely around the Borough offering a flexible, creative and weatherproofed space for a variety of meaningful and thought-provoking uses, enabling local people to have a real say in what happens to their neighbourhood. We are currently seeking funding for this project.
