This month, a new exhibition is presented at the Novium Museum in Chichester.

In an effort to bring the local community closer together, young artists from the area created works of art.

The Novium Museum in Chichester presents a new exhibition which started this month to inspire the local community.

The new art installation will be on display in Chichester until Saturday 18 February 2023.

A total of 150 young people from the neighborhood created pieces for the exhibition which were produced during the summer months in several free creative workshops.

The sessions were set up and managed by Article 12 Arts at the Novium Museum.

The organization has encouraged young people of diverse abilities and backgrounds to work together to collectively discover a new creative voice as they represent the community.

The artwork created was made by young people between the ages of 7 and 25.

Everyone involved received the summary of ‘The Art of Chichester: 60 Years of Creativity’, which tells how the arts have put Chichester and its surroundings on the map.

The art is made in a range of different mediums and installation, sculpture and storytelling, with the help of local professionals and creatives.

The young participants, who included asylum seekers supported by Sanctuary in Chichester, were introduced to the themes of the exhibition and invited to explore their own responses to identity and place through the different artistic mediums.

The project was made possible by a project grant from Arts Council England and generously supported by Chichester Arts Society Evening.

Funding from Arts Council England has also enabled a series of free Creative Family Days at the Novium Museum

These family days encourage family groups of all ages to explore their creative side by participating in a range of craft activities ranging from still life drawing and creative writing to origami and flower wreaths.

Art of Chichester Family Days will take place on Saturdays 15 and 29 October, and 12 and 26 November. Free entry.

Free entry.
