Work is under way to transform an old fire station into a £1m arts centre.
Carlisle City Council is aiming to turn the building on Warwick Street into a space for galleries, workshops and entertainment.
The scheme was given the go-ahead by councillors last year and initial work has now begun.
The authority said it hoped construction would be completed by spring 2015 with the facility including a cafe, auditorium and studio space.
