Playland: People and communities

The public engagement element of Playland was led by Gary Goodman, Worthing based artist & poet. He researched & delivered workshops for people with learning disabilities, encouraging them to explore senses of place & identity.

The customers from Coastal Enterprises, Worthing were supported by Goodman to create colourful works which convey their senses of people & communities within Worthing. Their works complement Darakchiev’s overview across geological & geographical areas with local responses to people & the communities they create, as self-portraits & expressive monoprints of townscapes which have significance to their creators. The customers’ works are juxtaposed with prints selected by them from Worthing Museum & Art Gallery’s permanent collection.

Coastal Enterprises supports the customers in helping to enhance & give back to their environment with an important part to play as valued members of the Worthing community.
