EIGHT works of art are to be commissioned by the Adur and Worthing Trust.

It means artists, musicians, performers and writers have the chance to apply for a £500 grant to help produce a piece.

The trust says the works of art could be in any shape or form, for example a painting, a performance, an intervention in the landscape, a piece of new music, film, literary work or a new exciting event.

Karen Simporis, on behalf of the trust, said: “We’re looking for new work that flags up the vibrant creative community we live in and we’ve made it a simple process.

“Don’t hesitate to email or call me on 01903 232875 if you have any questions though.”

Full details and application forms are available on the Commit to Culture website www.committoculture or on request from k.simporis1@ntlworld.com

Applications must be submitted electronically by February 27. Each work commissioned will receive a £500 grant.
