Get Creative Songwriting workshop at Linden Court Day Centre

2019 marks the 5th birthday of the Arts Connect programme.

We have been focusing efforts on securing funding for the next 5 years of activity, and in the meantime Get Creative and Get Connected events have been taking place in Eastbourne, funded by Sussex Police Community Safety Fund.

In February, songwriting workshops led by members of Delta 7 took place at Linden Court day centre and the Birley Centre in Eastbourne, exploring ideas and experiences of staying safe in the community.

In April, a Get Connected event took place at St Elisabeth’s church in Eastbourne on the theme of ‘Every Sort of Safe’. Members of Sussex Police Community Safety team were present along with artist Joel Apps and other organisations such as PoHwer and Project Search which support learning disabled people in East Sussex to live safe and fulfilling lives.

Details of Arts Connect activity starting in September 2019 will be announced shortly.
