"Art is a guarantee of sanity" Louise Bourgeois
During August 2013, Rotterdam artist Stefan Hoffmann worked in St Leonards to produce screen printed window installations for local businesses. He made contact with Gizmo Gaffe, a centre offering creative workshops for disadvantaged & special needs young people. Hoffmann worked for three days with three boys & two girls (12-18yrs) & two volunteers to encourage them to create their own printed window installation at Gizmo. He helped them design their selected images, prepare stencils & print on the windows with his equipment. The young people were very proud of their work & Hoffmann’s involvement with them is evidence that the arts can make a positive difference to individual lives. Hoffmann’s workshops were supported by The Seedcorn Fund through Sussex Community Foundation.
