Vinyl Wraps, Shopfront Takeovers
Time for Worthing - Shopfront Takeovers
The second piece in a very exciting project for us here at Ground Up Media was unveiled last week in South Street, Worthing.
We were very fortunate to receive our full CRF grant from Arts Council England in round 2 and as part of our application we proposed to transform disused retail spaces throughout Sussex to support local charities and promote the work of local artists in the area.
Our aim is to promote positivity through art by brightening up our high-streets and engaging local communities across Sussex.
For this super busy South Street location in Worthing, we teamed up with Time for Worthing, Summer in Worthing campaign. A local organisation whose aim is to welcome back locals to Worthing town centre as well as promote Worthing for summer day trips and staycations as we manoeuvre safely out of covid restrictions.
Cllr Kevin Jenkins, Worthing Borough Council's Executive Member for Regeneration, said:
“This project shows the true spirit of partnership working - working with business and third sector groups to showcase local talent to brighten up our town centre as lockdown restrictions are lifted.
“I'm also pleased it gives us another chance to promote our Summer in Worthing campaign - welcoming back locals and promoting Worthing for day trips and staycations and a way of bringing colour and creativity to our town centre as major redevelopment works take place.”
The exhibition on South Street features recent work showcasing the diverse creative talents of local residents:
- Mark O'Halleron: Photographer currently completing MA at Falmouth whose latest project traces the route of Worthing's Teville Stream.
- Rachel Worsley: 2021 graduate in BA(Hons) Fine Art at Northbrook Metropolitan College uses PPE masks to create cyanotypes and sculptural forms.
- Steve Carroll: Colourful artwork of famous Worthing scenes and landmarks such as Worthing Pier, Dome Cinema and Worthing Museum.
- Jenny Latham: Uplifting illustrations promoting empowerment for young women.
