This is a page where we talk about how we work with different people and make projects and ideas 'real' for them
Cusp inc unleashes new ways of thinking and doing through its best practice, community projects and productions that are inclusive, responsive and have extraordinary local and national impact.
Cusp inc has been behind some of the most eye catching community projects and productions in the South East over the last 10 years.
Blue Touch Paper was one such project: designed by Cusp Inc in partnership with Horsham District Council and the New Carnival Company on the Isle of Wight for London 2012. SprungDigi.com is its natural successor focused on digital inclusion for learning disabled creatives and communities working in West Sussex with partnerships with Access 2 Art in Adelaide Australia.
Our clients delight in our approach because
we see 'other' as an inspirational driver in the process of making art for everyone
we build ownership, confidence and cohesion in a wholly original way by engaging with the reality of people's lives and supporting them to lead
we are specialists in a diversity of communication methodologies: sign language, graphic illustration, audio description for access and artistic reach
The Pantry Project designed by Sarah Pickthall alongside Maria Pattinson is a community project that finds culinary solutions to mental health and physical well being working with a diversity of cross artform artists and community chefs. Funded by Arts Council England, Big Lottery C4C and NHS Recovery College
The work of the Cusp inc and The Pantry in particular is unique. I hope that more commissioners and the NHS will see the intrinsic value and impact of this outstanding wellbeing and recovery project.
Sarah has worked with Horsham District Council over a number of years and her outstanding innovation and community connection has made our mass participatory project work a force to be reckoned with.
Sarah really knows how to tap into the heart of what needs to happen in any project that she turns her hand to.
