Based in Eastbourne, Compass Arts is an intergenerational, co-creative, artist led organisation for anyone vulnerable to social isolation, lived trauma, mental illness and hidden disabilities. Nine interdisciplinary artists deliver a weekly program across several sites, free of charge and without any expectation of participants. The artists regularly work together to put on exhibitions, events and self-publish. A Collective was formed for participants who identify as an artist and wish to develop their contemporary practices through greater public interface.
