The Green Show is our largest and most ambitious project yet - and we need your help to make it happen!

Any contributions to our fund are very welcome - please visit our JustGiving page to help us raise enough funds to make this remarkable event a reality

The Green Show will offer families and children a creative experience and a great free afternoon out during the summer holidays! Visitors young and old can explore beautiful art works, learn a little about how these artists create their work and their source of inspiration. Artists and curators Alice Carter, Josie Swan, Sophie Peerless and Sally Elford will be on hand to speak with you about the art.

It has been proven in studies across the world that when a community has an event they can feel proud of then individuals feel closer to each other, feel part of something and this naturally contributes to a sense of well-being!

What will we be using your contributions for?

The Barn
The South Hill Barn has not been used for many years, and despite Seaford Town Council doing a great job maintaining the structure it lacks electricity, running water and toilet facilities. You will be helping us get the barn into a fit state to use for this show and hopefully future events. We will need to hire a fairly large and expensive generator to power the lights we will install inside the barn as getting permanent electrics installed is a little too expensive!*  There will be transport costs to get all our equipment in place, lighting to install, and health and safety considerations.

* You may think electricity is the responsibility of the council, but at this time they simply do not have the budget to put funds into the barn. We are really excited to be working with STC on this project and it would not be happening without their support.

The Exhibition
We will need to build walls and panels and plinths to exhibit the artworks, these will be able to be used again for future shows. We have also decided to buy our own lighting, it’s more affordable than hiring and can also be used again. We will also be constructing our own cinema screen for your viewing pleasure!

The Workshops

There will be costs involved for all the workshops, from paper and glue to cutting tools and inks. We strive to offer all our junior workshops for free so every child, regardless of family income can take part and try something new.

The Cinema

Making films costs money, and we hope to make three special films for this event. These will help educate and entertain, and will be made available for the local community to use within schools and education campaigns after the exhibition.

The Lectures

These brilliantly fun evenings will predominantly host lecturers who are donating their time to speak, however if we can raise enough we hope to be able to invite some very exciting people to come and join the program and keep the entry free where possible.

Administration and Marketing

To make this event a success we need to market the exhibition. Literature, posters and all the administrative costs of marketing and organising the event certainly adds up.

Everything Else
From insurance, to alarms, to nails, to hay bales - we need everything! so we need your help!
