Neighbourhood Arts

In 2018 our partnership work in Hangleton and East Brighton caught the attention of the City Council as they were developing a cultural framework for the city. Developing a year-round arts and culture offer that is led by local residents in Hangleton and East Brighton is now one of five areas of activity for the cultural framework.

In 2019 Brighton and Hove Council commissioned Brighton People’s Theatre to work in partnership with communities in Hangleton and East Brighton to research what local people see as important in the arts, to visit other inspiring resident-led arts projects and to develop an arts action plan for each neighbourhood.

This project is ongoing and will be complete in April 2020.
