MUSIC and arts is available for former rough sleepers now in temporary accommodation in Hastings and Eastbourne.

Five new projects are launching in the community this month to explore creative ways to overcome the strains of lockdown and think about public health and wellbeing beyond COVID.

One is focusing on the former rough sleepers who now have a roof over their heads in Eastbourne.

They will be working with music and arts organisations Resonate Creative CIC and Eastbourne Studio Pottery.

Commissioned by East Sussex County Council Cultural Strategy and Public Health staff, the Everyday Creativity programme is being managed by Lewes-based arts charity Culture Shift, with each project being led by different creative organisations.

The aim is to engage creative individuals and organisations whose work has been so adversely affected by the pandemic. Projects will run from March to the end of June 2021.
