Sub Groups

Culture East Sussex has four Sub Groups comprised of members and co-opted members. These groups meet regularly to discuss CES projects and the board are kept up to date on activity.

Culture Priority Pipeline (CPP)

The CPP subgroup meet to discuss submissions, give advice to organisations on funding, and decide which projects are placed on the Pipeline. You can find more information on the CPP page on the previous tab.

Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI)

The EDI subgroup build and report on the CES EDI Action Plan. Reporting at each CES board meeting, the group aim to increase and improve provision in Culture across East Sussex.

Eastbourne Alive

As part of the Turner Prize wraparound project, Eastbourne Alive worked to create a wider benefit to Eastbourne and East Sussex. Involving themes of skills, young people, and the visitor economy, this subgroup ended in April 2024.


The nominations group create the CES advert to ensure it is easily accessible and shared widely. They also review and accept applications to join the board, and identify gaps in representation.

Cultural Strategy

This task and finish group is working through refreshing the East Sussex Cultural Strategy. This group will start meeting from May 2024.
