A creative collaboration between Sight Support Worthing, the local visually impaired community and Worthing’s ‘West End’ artists will produce decorations, for public display and hold art workshops to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
Sight Support Worthing (SSW) is a local charity, based in Rowlands Road, Worthing. It’s aim; is to inspire and support anyone with a visual impairment. As we emerge from the pandemic, SSW are finding new ways to engage and connect, not only with those that use its services but also with the local community.
Sight Support Worthing are working with local talented artists to produce collaborative art that will be on show to the public, enhance the neighbourhood, and also foster a good community spirit celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee together.
Joint workshops for the organisations visually impaired members will be held in April and May at the Rowlands Road centre, led by ‘partner’ artists. Including, Inclusive Arts, Storm, Nina Reid, Barry Williams and Sarah Sepe.
Different age groups of visually impaired members will have the opportunity to learn new skills, and through the support of the local artists and the great band of volunteer helpers. The workshops will use a variety of techniques and materials to produce large material banners and wire crowns that will be displayed for the public to see and enhance the local area, ready for the Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
