'Celebrating the arts'

'Supporting positive  mental health & emotional well-being'


To enhance long term emotional well being and promote positive mental health;

To provide a platform to showcase local and young/ emerging artists and performers with exceptional talent; 

To put on regular art, music, dance and performance arts events for the local community to access; 

To provide a localised 'arts' hub, networking space & workshops to bring together the arts community and to provide practical and emotional support;


The Arts Portfolio was set up in 2017 and ran several very successful community art fairs and events in East Sussex.  In 2018 & 2019 The Arts Portfolio worked closely with Sussex based young people with exceptional talent as well as hosting a charity event to promote emotional well being through the arts.  In 2020 the organisation was turned into a Community Interest Company (C.I.C.) with the aim to seek funding to further support and develop the arts within the community as well as enable us to provide more practical support to talented young people to access the arts.  

The Arts Portfolio C.I.C. is based in Mayfield, East Sussex.  The organisation is coordinated from two primary locations, both in Mayfield village.  Melford House, a private home on the edge of Mayfield village and 'Celebrating The Arts' a window gallery space on Mayfield high street kindly supported by Peter Hetreed of INVO Solutions.  The Arts Portfolio C.I.C. is keen to work alongside other local charities and organisations such as MAYFACS, local schools & other Sussex based charities.  If you
