Elmhirst Building Booking Form

Golden Iris are a group of young volunteers from in and around Totnes that work within the community to bring forward creative activities, skills development, capacity building and respect. They are working with Totnes Community Development Society to renovate and use the Elmhirst Building (the lower school site within KEVICC) which Totnes Community Development Society have a licence to use. 

The Golden Iris team have a programme of events for the Autumn/Winter 2019 which take on and expand those activities launched within their debut event – the Golden Iris Festival 2017 . These are focused on music, dance, fashion, photography, art, graffiti, fitness, carpentry and wellbeing.

This form has been put together to enable collaboration through the Elmhirst Building; to establish where there are other activities within the community, already underway or planned, that can support the Golden Iris team in opening up the building for the benefit of young people and other vulnerable individuals in the community, and make best use of the space in line with the vision of the Golden Iris team.

Booking Details
Totnes Community Development Society is supporting the Golden Iris team to realise this vision for the Elmhirst Building*:

Our main aim for developing the Elmhirst Building is supplying the community and young people a safe, yet inviting place, for people with all types of interests to come and get involved with either supporting something they are doing, or getting young people involved with something new or developing new skills. This idea stemmed from the lack of safe and inviting places for young people in the Totnes community; resulting in many young people not being able to discover or practise a talent in a place where nobody is judged and everyone is included and safe. We, as a team feel this is exactly what the Totnes community needs in order to open new opportunities for every young person. 

*Priority will be given to activities that support this vision. 

If you would like to book multiple single events (i.e. two more different, unrelated events) then please use the 'Add another response' button at the end of this section and input the details a second time rather than completing a second form.
