LOVE Local High Street Events, Summer 2021

Artswork collaborated with Littlehampton Town Council and Arun District Council to produce a programme of high quality family friendly arts events on Littlehampton High Street across the post-covid summer of 2021.

A mixture of work BY local young people including….

And quality work FOR families working with…

  • Applause Outdoors to present pop up Dukeboxes, giant interactive chime bars and a very naughty mobile ice-cream parlour
  • Fedora for traditional sea-side entertainment
  • Littlehampton’s Organisation of Community Arts (LOCA) for a high street chalk takeover
  • UCanSpray for large scale urban art
  • Creative Heart for crafting workshops and sea-shanties.

You can get a flavour of the experiences in the short film produced about the project here:

The programme was shortlisted by the National Campaign for the Arts in the Best Project category.

“What a Fantastic idea! High Streets have been at the heart of the community and this project set out to explore how they can be again, but more than that, in an area starved of funding for the Arts, it has shown how creativity and re-imagining can cut across all sectors and all generations. I really love the clear appreciation of the work of the young across the generations. And I love that they used the Heart of the Town for their Canvas. Bravo!!”
