As a spin off from last year’s successful annual Art Trail, we have set up a local Artist’s Network. In addition to having had enquiries about linking artists with service providers to work on art projects, other opportunities have arisen out of the art trail for artists to collaborate with local venues and businesses. Hailsham Artists Network hosted a networking lunch at Chapter 12 on Wednesday 1st Feb 2017 and drinks at 7pm for those who couldn’t make lunch time . All local artists and any individuals or organisations wishing to work with artists, are welcome to join the Network. Our next events are on Wednesday 29th March – Social Media training for artists at 10am in Eastbourne, and a tour of Geoff Pittman’s pottery studio in Hailsham in the evening followed by a get together and chat. Please contact the Network either on Facebook or via email.

We would like to increase the size of our committee so please do get in touch if you would like to help with plans for the 2017 Festival.
