Morton Solutions comments on new building for City College
City College in Norwich have announced plans for a new 5.7million pound creative arts building.
• Performing arts rehearsal spaces, for dance, acting, and musical theatre.
• The digital arts, including interactive media, graphics, animation, media editing suites, a TV studio and music rehearsal and recording studios
• Traditional art and design, fashion and textiles and cultural heritage/craft based programmes.
The upgrade was made possible by a generous grant provided by the ‘skills Funding Agency’ which will cover a third of the over all costs, a source from Morton Solutions has said “It is great to see the skills funding agency providing a helping hand and allowing city college this opportunity to have this fantastic building”
The College will retain its 250-seat theatre in the Norfolk Building, which is soon to be re-launched under the new name of 'Platform'. This will remain as the venue for public performances of music, dance, acting and musical theatre shows. A source from Morton Solutions said “With this new building and also retaining the 250-seat theatre, we feel this will help to expand performing arts to a wider range of people around Norwich”
Jo Pretty, Head of School of Creative & Business Industries, said: ‘This new building will provide an inspirational space for the development of creative talent in a much broader way, building on our strengths in developing students skills whilst promoting greater interdisciplinary collaboration across course disciplines’
