Scheme is architect’s third to rely on digital fundraising

Studio Octopi has launched a £37,000 crowdfunding campaign to realise its proposal to convert a disused building in Margate into a creative education centre for disadvantaged youth.

xChange Studios will be used to train and engage young people in the Cliftonville district of the seaside town which has had major cultural investment in the last few years but which remains deprived. Cliftonville West has the highest level of child poverty in the south-east.
