Local Art Stories

As part of the commitment to serving our local communities through our Force for Good programme, Premier Inn is proud to launch a collaboration with Project Art Works: a visual arts organisation working with people who have complex needs. We are displaying eight original, vibrant paintings across our East Sussex hotel receptions and Support Centres.

Project Art Works support people who have complex needs - and their families - by facilitating artist-led workshops which include painting, drawing, printmaking, collage, sculpture, animation and photography. The charity’s mission is to change lives through art by exploring each artist’s potential, revealing and sharing their creative abilities.

Through this project, Premier Inn are aiming to boost awareness of the charity and tell the Local Art Stories behind them by displaying eight original pieces across six East-Sussex hotels and two of our Support Centres. The initiative aims to delivers a wide range of positive community, environmental and employment activities.

A Team Member and Operations Manager in each of the hotels hosting the art is now a Project Art Works ambassador. After attending an engaging awareness workshop, they experienced first-hand how the charity improves the lives of individuals and families through their studio sessions and how they create the work.

All paintings are on display at Premier Inn Hastings, Tonbridge North, Eastbourne, Eastbourne Polegate, Maidestone Leybourne and Newhaven as well as Whitbread Court and Whitbread Digital offices in Houghton Regis and London.
