Adur & Worthing Trust is the local charity behind the popular Colonnade House and the successful partnership with Worthing Borough Council that has brought the creative hub to the town. An important part of their work as a charity is to help get ideas and new creative businesses off the ground, and that’s where the Creative Commissions come in.

Now in its seventh year, the Trust wants to see creative projects ‘brought to life’ by residents of Adur & Worthing. The first launch event was held at Colonnade House, Worthing on 16 January which welcomed a spread of creative practitioners & organisations as they heard about how they can access the grants of £500 - £1000.
