Arts and Culture Education Showcase Event

for Schools and Colleges in West Sussex

Thursday 6th November, Minerva Lounge,

Chichester Festival Theatre.


On Thursday 6th November 2014, the inaugural showcase of arts and culture educational enrichment programmes will take place at the Minerva Lounge, Chichester Festival Theatre.

Hosted by The Sussex Arts Academy, this Free event for schools and colleagues has been designed to create a "marketplace" enabling practitioners and educators to explore the opportunities for working more closely together for the benefit of all children and young people in education in the county.


The Sussex Arts Academy (SAA) is a registered charity which aims to provide easier access to the very best in arts and cultural education for the benefit of all children and young people in schools and colleges across West Sussex.

This will be achieved by connecting schools and colleges with enrichment programmes offered by lead practitioners and arts/cultural education providers, by facilitating access to venues, and by supporting showcase events, of which this is the first.

A bursary fund will be set up by the SAA to support those who would otherwise have difficulty in accessing these services.


Free places for the event, which runs from 10am - 2pm (including a buffet lunch), are available for members of staff at schools and colleges who specialise in the arts and cultural areas of the curriculum. In addition to the Showcase, attendees will be consulted on how the SAA should go about linking  teachers and arts programme providers together, and on how the bursary funds should be deployed.


Schools and Colleges which subscribe to e-PD you can book places through the e-PD system.  Those that are subscriber to e-PD, please contact Tracey Richardson (tracey-richardson@ampersand-ltd.co.uk) to reserve your places by Monday 3rd November.


On hearing of the event, The Duke of Richmond said, "As a long standing Patron of the Arts I'm delighted The Sussex Arts Academy ambition is to provide children and young people with access to the very best in arts and cultural education. The development of a bursary scheme is an extremely important aspect of this, ensuring there are no barriers to learning and participation. The arts and culture industry continues to grow, offering an ever widening range of employment opportunities. Education is key to exposing young people to the possibilities."


The SAA is committed to developing partnerships with a wide range of organisations and has  recently launched a partnership with Creatives Across Sussex, http://www.creativesacrosssussex.com having established a pilot partnership with e-PD, http://www.e-pd.org.uk to connect with schools and colleges.
