Artytime has been awarded £9,990 by the National Lottery Fund to deliver two 6-month pilot projects once lockdown is over.
Artytime have previously held sessions in Uckfield on Tuesday at St Philip’s School and on Wednesdays at Buxted for children under 5.
The first is a weekly arts & craft and sensory skills session for adults with learning difficulties.
The second project is a youth club in the Jarvis Brook area of Crowborough for people aged 11 to 17.
Artytime is a Crowborough-based Community Interest Company, run mainly by volunteers. They deliver a variety of arts and crafts workshops for all ages and abilities across Wealden.
Beverly Pashley said:
“We intend the youth club to be youth-led to ensure they have ownership and a voice. The intention is to also offer broad experiential opportunities as well as a safe space for the young people to meet”
“We will also link with other support services and open the young peoples eyes to potential career opportunities too”
Unfortunately until the lockdown is over both projects are on hold.
