New Amusements

Worthing Homes logo

New Amusements funded by the Arts Council, England.

We designed the project to highlight the value of the creative industries and arts education for young people.

Inspired by ex Northbrook College students, artist Jamie Hewlett [Gorillaz] & writer Alan Martin who collaborated a few decades ago to create the comic book character Tank Girl.

An exclusive free, exhibition on Worthing Pier, curated by
Alan Martin, illustrates the story of the artists and their
work together.
Featuring examples of Jamie Hewlett's early illustrations and Alan's maths book when he was at Durrington High School!

Alan has curated a small collection of his random bits and bobs, comic ephemera and some of Jamie Hewlett's original artwork which are displayed at Worthing Museum until July 2017.

Both collections are being used to inspire current students to
create new work through an arts education programme.
Working alongside professional artists, including Adam Seaman, Asdescribed; we will showcase students' work in response to
Tank Girl to include comic art, illustration, 3D prop/model making, combined with interactive, audio visual light installations.

Students and artists collaborated to deliver and generate a free event in Feb 2017 at St.Pauls Arts Centre in Worthing Town Centre.
