Creative Waves Community Arts, is a not for profit Community Interest Company founded by local artists Vanessa Breen and Nadia Chalk in 2011.
Their energy and enthusiasm for creative collaborations gives them a relentless drive to design and organise projects that involve the local community whilst improving public spaces. Creative Waves have a successful track record working on exciting and innovative public art and community projects across West Sussex. Working with museums, schools, colleges and community groups designing and delivering bespoke projects.
Art on the Pier, began, in 2012, showcasing the artwork of 60 local artists. Since then it’s grown annually displaying hundreds of local and national artists’ work and thousands of local children have also benefited from displaying their artwork publicly.
Creative Waves have also developed a community garden ‘Bugcycle’ in Beach House Park that is free for the public to enjoy. It’s a creative space, with everything made from recycled objects in their art workshops. There are educational activities in the garden including a bird trail and identifying trees & bugs.
“We aim to inspire people and inject art into the community by collaborating and sharing our wealth of experience, talent & creativity."
