The Lewes Phoenix Project 2008-2009
Project to explore the history and significance of the site of the Phoenix Foundry
Heritage Lottery Fund
Sussex Archaeological Trust
Lewes Town Council
When Skies Were Bluer
Artemis Arts has been building a project based on the history of the site since March 2006. The “Lewes Phoenix’ group, made up of artists, filmmakers, educators and other interested parties, has been developing plans to research the significance of the Phoenix Foundry to Lewes and the surrounding area.
The steering committee includes Mick Hawksworth-Filmmaker, Chris Ient-Educator and Sarah Hitching-oral historian. An extensive number of local partnerships have been made including –Lewes District Council, East Sussex County Records Office, Sussex Past.
This represents over two years of preparation and consultation. We are eager to begin the research so that we can enjoy the site and share it with the community. We will offer historians, scientists, engineers and artists the opportunity to document the site before it disappears and through our funded work we will be able to conserve some of its significance and honour its role in shaping our town.

‘Lewes Now and Then’ Artwave 2008.
The ‘Lewes Phoenix‘ project will be launched during the three week Artwave event. A collaboration with clubs, youth organisations, artists, scientists, musicians, writers and historians will be arranged to celebrate the influence of the foundry workers on the town. Local businesses will be encouraged to support the project through sponsorship and by creative involvement.
23 August-14 September 2008
An exhibition of selected local artists.
Focus- Lewes and the surrounding countryside.
The Foundry was established in 1832 — this was a time when large numbers of local people were moving from the land to towns and cities. The theme of town and country, from the early nineteenth century to the present day will be echoed in a series of events, which will be held in the old foundry buildings during the three-week exhibition. An education programme for all ages will take place linked to the historical significance of the site and to art, science and technology.
A uniting creative experience linking the community to its recent industrial past through collaboration in the present.
