Community Map of Eastbourne

Posted on 5/07/2018

From 28 July to 2 September, we’re inviting everyone to contribute to a new map of Eastbourne. Add your favourite places throughout the town; the places you go in Eastbourne to relax, create, play, discover, remember and connect.

Every day in Art Box – on the first floor of the gallery, next door to our free creative learning space Fuse Box – you’re encouraged to look at things from a different perspective, drawing inspiration from Towner’s current Arts Council Collection National Partner exhibition At Altitude.

The culmination of the project will be the collation of everyone’s ideas into a new map of the town, created by residents for residents.

Throughout this time Art Box will be open every day during gallery hours (except for Thursday 10.00am to 1.00pm when our Arts in Mind artist collective are using the space), all ages welcome.

I ♥ Eastbourne

Community Map of Eastbourne project kicks off and closes with free “I ♥ Eastbourne” workshops with graphic artist Maja Jones, where you can create seaside collectibles, play with typography and let the world know your passion for our town.

These workshops are drop-in, with no booking required. Everyone of every age is invited to take part and all materials will be provided.

Launch weekend workshops: Saturday 28 July & Sunday 29 July, 2.00pm to 4.00pm
Closing weekend workshops: Saturday 1 September & Sunday 2 September, 2.00pm to 4.00pm
