Support for the arts

Mid Sussex works with Creatives Across Sussex to support artists.

It is a service that helps artists:

  • Find funding
  • Develop their projects

Creatives Across Sussex also supports the creation of large-scale arts projects with communities in Sussex. It has a creative directory to help local artists connect to businesses and to share creative work, news, events and opportunities.
