Worthing and Beyond is an online database of creative people and businesses who support local creativity in Worthing, West Sussex, and the surrounding area (from Southwick to Bognor Regis). It’s one of our side projects here at Huxley. We write profiles for all the Worthing creatives we can find – ranging from artists and illustrators, to street dance companies and musicians – then publish them on this website. Our aim is to connect local creatives with local businesses, in order to facilitate partnerships and creative collaborations without the need for agency fees. ‘Worthing and Beyond: In Review’ is a blog series that provides a monthly overview for Huxley’s readers of what’s new with Worthing and Beyond.
The summer started off with a bang with tons of creative exhibitions, workshops, and artist opportunities, as well as the promise of exciting things in the months to come. Read on to find out what Worthing & Beyond was up to in May.
