ingénu/e magazine

– South Downs & High Weald

The next issue of ingénu/e magazine will soon be found in various outlets across the region (see Outlets page for further details). Meanwhile the articles from the magazine can be seen in this section.

The options on this drop-down menu approximate the sections within the printed magazine, with articles covering a wide range of creative activity across the region from month to month.

Spotlight focuses each month on one particular event or subject that is topical or catches our eye.

Painting, printmaking, sculpture, textile art, installations, assemblage, and photography can be found under Visual Arts.

Makers and Designers covers an eclectic mix of creativity, from studio ceramics, designer glass and contemporary crafts to traditional skills such as wood turning and pottery.

For theatre, film – particularly independent and emerging film makers – dance, and music of all kinds go to Performing Arts.

Seasonal does what it says on the tin – highlights seasonal events such as festivals, creative themed holidays, Christmas exhibitions etc.

Drawing and painting classes, creative writing residential breaks, acting workshops are among the subjects under discussion in Creative Courses.

Poetry, Prose & Illustration speaks for itself. When matched well these are naturally harmonious bedfellows.

Creativity and artistry can be applied to almost any area of life, in particular fashion and jewellery, interiors and gardens, and even food and drink flourish when in the hands of an accomplished designer. See how in Food, Fashion and Everything Else.

Bringing the magazine to a close is Coda, Roger’s own inimitable take on the world around him, and a must-read.


“The arts are not just a nice thing to have or to do if there is free time or if one can afford it. Rather, paintings and poetry, music and fashion, design and dialogue, they all define who we are as a people and provide an account of our history for the next generation.” – Michelle Obama
