Garden Of Delights



Delights of the Garden’ is a collaboration between Tempo Arts & Compass Community Arts, partners & participants to create art in 7 allotment plots. Workshops in July/August will produce creative works informed by food production & nature.

‘Delights of the Garden’ features artworks by members of Compass Community Arts, Gather collective, the children of Blackberry Buzzard & Christine Gist, a director of Tempo Arts. They have worked through August-September to create an art trail across 7 allotments where volunteers, visitors & other well being groups have met, talked & created, so embracing all the positives that flow from a ‘dose of nature’.

The project is a creative response to the location celebrating the importance of nature for well being. There is a sense of inclusion for both participants & audiences as they experience innovative & challenging art work outside a traditional gallery structure.
The 7 allotments are managed by the Gather Collective – an Eastbourne community church which works in partnership with The Growing Futures charity. Compass Community Arts, led by director Fenya Sharkey, uses creative practice to develop self-esteem & confidence. Blackberry Buzzard CIC is a non profit organisation run by volunteers who work with children, schools & families in natural settings. Tempo Arts Ltd is a not for profit international arts organisation based in Hastings which commissions new artworks which are frequently presented outdoors.

Access -The main paths in the allotment are accessible for wheelchairs but paths between individual allotments are narrow. These access routes are accessible to push chairs but difficult for large prams.
