Applications open for Step Up: Exploring Collections course with the Chichester Community Development Trust (Graylingwell)

The chapel at Graylingwell

Outside In is delighted to be partnering with The Chichester Community Development Trust (CCDT) to deliver a Step Up: Exploring Collections course that will focus on the history of Graylingwell Hospital in Chichester.

As part of larger Heritage Lottery Funded project, CCDT aims to restore and redevelop Graylingwell Chapel, a Grade II listed building that was once part of the former Graylingwell Hospital in Chichester. Part of the redevelopment plan includes the re-interpretation of objects, artefacts and stories relating to Graylingwell’s heritage. It will focus on the design of new exhibitions and displays and will enable the history of the site and hospital to be accessible to all.

In 2020, CCDT will be installing an exhibition at The Novium in Chichester. There will be the opportunity to support the installation and interpretation of this exhibition through an extension of this Exploring Collections course, which will take the form of a Step Up: Curating Exhibitions course.

In collaboration with Chichester Community Development Trust, Outside In is running an Open Day on Monday 28 October 2019, 11am – 3pm.

The Open Day is taking place at Community Hall, Donegall Avenue, Roussillon Park, Chichester, PO19 6DF. It is an opportunity for those interested in taking part in the course to come along, find out more, and get some support completing an application form.
