The East Sussex Contemporary Art Fair is organised to help raise funds for Rye College, Arts & Enterprise Specialist School. Each year the money raised helps provide additional resources for the school. Last year’s art fair helped raise funds for a group of students to visit Ghana to gain first hand experience of what life and education are like in West Africa. As a Creative Partnerships Change School, staff at Rye College believe that a rich arts experience makes learning an enjoyment; They hope to enhance student’s learning experience further by supporting them in their ambition to create  once in a lifetime experiences.
