Sound Architect

Sound Architect Creative Media

Formed in 2002, Sound Architect Creative Media is a Charity based in East Sussex providing educational and recreational opportunities for all through music technology, film making, photography and all other aspects of digital creative media, including IT and digital training.

They have worked extensively with people of all ages including those with disabilities, behavioural problems and issues of exclusion, to raise awareness of difficult subjects, to make history come to life and to ensure that valuable research and memories are recorded for posterity. Some programmes they deliver have focussed on older people, particularly in oral history and ICT training, but many have been intergenerational.

Sound Architect also provides day opportunities for older people under the banner of ENGAge (its sister organisation), through the TNN22 Clubs in Hadlow Down and at venues throughout East Sussex and Kent.

Rachel Lewis (above, centre, with senior Management colleagues), CEO, highlights the benefits to her organisation of being able to access faster and more reliable broadband:

"We work through a range of media to deliver our programmes, but key to us is the ability to introduce people to and enable them to embrace digital media in all its forms.

To be able to achieve our aims, we are dependent on being able to access and use broadband that doesn't 'crash', that allows us to use multiple devices at the same time, and where the ease of use encourages participants on our courses to gain and practise new skills without them experiencing the frustrations that happen when a service is unreliable.

Maintaining confidence for people experiencing and exploring modern technologies is a tenuous thing that can easily be crushed when things don’t go well – reliable services are essential to maintain interest and allow individuals to continue to drive forward in their learning.

In addition, as a modern organisation, we use our website to showcase our work and provide information, as well as using e-mail as a key means of communication. We risk losing credibility and work opportunities if we aren’t able to access fast, reliable broadband.  We are based in the phase 1 area, and whole-heartedly support and welcome the eSussex project, which has already enabled me to upgrade our package to support the running of an efficient service both internally and externally facing. 

Finally the modern technological world has reached us!!"
