BHAC Outstanding Contribution to the Arts Award

BHAC (1st May 2019)

Brighton & Hove Arts Council (BHAC) is delighted to invite its group members to nominate an individual for its annual Outstanding Contribution to the Arts Award.

Each year BHAC has selected an individual who we believe has made a difference to the not-for-profit arts scene in the area and presented them with the Outstanding Contribution to the Arts Award at our Annual General Meeting.  Past winners have included Muriel Hart (Brighton Orpheus Choir),  Pat Shrimpton  (Lewes Theatre Club), Audrey Kaufmann, (South Downs Art Society), Arthur Collins (English-Speaking Union), and Andrew Granger-Bevan (our committee member and trustee who edited the BHAC Arts Diary for over forty years). 

With nearly 80 group members we thought it would be a good idea this year if we asked you to put forward a name for the 2019 award, so please circulate this to your members.  The nominee can be anyone in the not-for-profits arts sector in Brighton & Hove (and its environs) who has made a significant contribution to the arts – from the central performers to the unsung heroes who work behind the scenes.

The applications will be judged by the BHAC Executive Committee and will be awarded at the Annual General Meeting in June.  The winner will be presented with a certificate, and a trophy which they keep for a year. 

Please fill in the following details by 31st May, clearly explaining why you think your nominee deserves to win:

 Name of member group:
