Story

Thank you for visiting our fundraising page.

We hope to turn Seaford into a hub for the contemporary arts and illustration – giving fellow artists and makers the confidence to exhibit and work here too! Our events are accessible to all ages and offer a unique creative outlet for children of all abilities via free workshops.

Up until now SCIP has been self-funded by its founding members, with our profits going straight back into our next events. In 2018 we hosted The Book Show which captured the imagination of our residents and tourists alike. The profits have enabled us to put on Seaford’s first creative networking event and two days of free children’s workshops for Artwave this September.

What's Coming Up Next?

In August 2019 we will be launching ‘The Green Show’. The first event ever held at Seaford’s treasured South Hill Barn, situated on the top of Seaford Head between the beach and Cuckmere Haven. This is an extraordinary venue to be using and we are delighted to be supported by Seaford Town Council to host the first event that will be open to the public.

The theme of the show will be the landscape, environment and climate change. We will be inviting over 30 of the UK’s finest Illustrators and Printmakers to produce a stunning and unique range of artworks exclusively for the show inspired by these themes. All the art will be available to view and purchase throughout the event – the profits will cover any outstanding costs and enable us to continue providing creative events for Seaford and East Sussex.

We will have a mini cinema, looping a series of short films and documentaries about the Sussex landscape, the Rampion Wind Farm, Seaford’s Plastic Free campaign, the nature reserve and many more. This will be open every day and free to watch.

Visitors can contribute to our interactive art installation and book on to our art workshop program too. These will be available to all ages and free where possible.

Why do we need funding help?

The Green Show is our largest and most ambitious project yet - and we need your help to make it happen!

Seaford and the surrounding area is ready for a major arts event and an experience to inspire its community and visitors from further afield. This event will breathe life in to our town, bring new visitors from surrounding counties and put Seaford on the map as a truly creative and exciting place to visit. SCIP is not a business and we currently are self-funded with big ideas but modest resources.

The Green Show will offer families and children a creative experience and a great free afternoon out during the summer holidays! Visitors young and old can explore beautiful art works, learn a little about how these artists create their work and their source of inspiration. Artists and curators Alice Carter, Josie Swan and Sally Elford will be on hand to speak with you about the art.

Everyone can enjoy the diverse film selections and have fun creating deep sea creatures in our workshop barn throughout the two weeks!

It has been proven in studies across the world that when a community has an event they can feel proud of then individuals feel closer to each other, feel part of something and this naturally contributes to a sense of well-being!

SCIP need your help to make this truly amazing event happen. And anything you can afford to donate will help.

What will we be spending your money on?

Everything! For a start our venue is a lovely old barn with heaps of potential but no electricity or running water ... yet! So, in a nutshell, we are looking for the funds to acquire/hire: generators, portaloos, art materials for free workshops, staff, lighting... the list is extensive - too much to waffle on about here - but more details can be found at wearescip.co.uk
