Chalkwell Hall supports a number of different activities, as follows:

Sharing the space

Developing and Delivering projects
Creating opportunities and finding funding for a wide variety of arts projects to be developed, both at the house, and elsewhere throughout the region.

Artists in Residence
Inviting artists (from across the UK and overseas) of all disciplines to come and live in the house for short periods of time to develop ideas, relationships and work.

An Artist - led Think Tank
A series of debates, conversation, commissioned writing and a biannual event that will bring together artists from around the world with individuals from other sectors (community, business, politics, regeneration etc) to exchange opinions, ideas, find common ground, locate opportunity etc. The emphasis will be on discussing creative approaches to current issues / challenges and opportunities facing Britain today.
