Following on the success of our 2017 scheme Adur & Worthing Trust wants to commission more works of art to take place in Adur & Worthing – these could be in any shape or form, for example a painting, a performance, an intervention in the landscape, a piece of new music, a film ,a literary work or a new exciting event.

Each work commissioned will receive £250- £500 to produce the artwork and an accompanying archive that will be submitted to Adur & Worthing Trust at the end of the project – this could be photographs, film, text or a combination of different media.

All work must be completed by the end of 2019 and this is a one-off scheme.

Each commission must:

  • be shared with the public in some way
  • demonstrate a link with the regeneration of Adur & Worthing (i.e. helping the area become a vibrant place, for both residents and visitors)
  • be a new piece of art developed especially for this scheme
  • network or partner two or more members of Worthing & Adur’s creative community
  • promote the idea that Worthing & Adur is the creative area we know it to be!

Applications are to be submitted electronically by midnight Sunday 3 March 2019.  Winners will be announced by Thursday 21 March 2019.
