The Tide Mills Project
LYT Productions, directed by Phil Rose, are currently working on the Tide Mills Project, a major creative heritage enterprise. It is backed by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Arts Council England, and the South Downs National Park. Highly regarded professional artists, designers, sculptors, poets, musicians and writers are collaborating with LYT Productions and the local community to bring Tide Mills back to life. This work will culminate in a celebratory week next September. The event will be free, accessible - and open for everybody to take part.
Although a quiet wildlife sanctuary now, Tide Mills was once a hive of industry. Ruins of an old village, mill and hospital are still visible and one can imagine past lives, before it was deserted. Stables for retired racehorses were once on the site, as was an early radio station and a seaplane station.
The Secret Garden Kemp Town
The Secret Garden, a registered UK charity, run by the Antony Dale Trust, is a unique facility for Brighton & Hove. It is the only garden of its type in the city, and the only place where major outdoor works of sculpture can be shown in a secure setting. It is a ‘secret' because it is a delightful walled garden hidden from view, in the midst of suburban Kemp Town.
ProjectSpotter manage the Secret Garden Kemp Town's publicity and profile raising campaigns year-round, and project managed William Pye: Sculpting with Water, their major sculpture exhibition for 2019. They are currently working in the same role on the upcoming exhibition In Nature, which will open to the public in May 2020.

A Profound Waste of Time Magazine
‘Inspired by videogames’, A Profound Waste of Time (APWOT) is editorially discerning and beautifully designed and plays host to a rich variety of voices from inside and outside the games industry, interwoven with stunning imagery from leading illustrators and artists. The magazine, edited by Caspian Whistler, doesn’t aim to compete with online game review websites and communities, instead it serves to celebrate gaming culture and discussion. The magazine was recently shortlisted for two Stack Awards and was commended in the ‘Use of Illustration’ category.
ProjectSpotter ran a press and media campaign for issue 1 of APWOT, and assisted with social media content for the APWOT accounts in the run up to Christmas. in November and December 2019, ProjectSpotter ran a publicity campaign for the APWOT issue 2 Kickstarter.
