What we do
SCIP is an arts charity dedicated to breaking down the barriers which stop people from accessing the arts in our community, we do this by providing workshops, exhibitions and events from our home The Crypt Gallery in Seaford.
Our team is passionate about contemporary visual arts, and believe art can be a powerful tool to support individuals wellbeing and bring together entire communities.
We provide opportunities for children and young people to explore their own creativity by providing free art workshops and family friendly events throughout the year.
We are passionate about providing our youth workshops for free as we believe that every child should have access to the arts regardless of family income.
Breaking Down Barriers
At SCIP we want to break down some of the barriers which stop people from accessing the arts, and create welcoming, and inclusive creative experiences for everyone. We understand and value the positive impact having access to creative opportunities can have on mental health, confidence and social development for all ages.
Our SCIP Youth programme has been designed to help us learn what culture means to young people in our community. We give them a voice and opinion in developing their creative programme, workshops and event ideas. We meet monthly and explore new art techniques and materials, and invite proffessional creative practitioners to come and teach new skills.
