Due to the ongoing Covid-19 Pandemic, our opportunities for people to get involved are currently focused on our online weekly theatre workshops.
During lockdown in Spring 2020, we moved all our activities online and experimented with online theatre-making. You can read about our experiences of doing this and what we learnt on our blog here.
In Autumn 2020 we have been commissioned by Brighton Dome and Brighton Festival to co-create a short, magical, satirical, film celebrating key workers in the city. We are working with writer Rebecca Manley, musician Toby Park and with 20 participants from across the city. We meet every Monday night on zoom and will be filming (socially distanced) on the stage of the Brighton Dome in November.
We are actively fundraising to generate enough income so that we can resume our face to face weekly workshops in the centre of the city, and also expand our workshop offer to other community centres. We hope to be running weekly workshops in Whitehawk, Moulscoombe/Bevendean, Tarner and Portslade.
Long term we are interested in developing our work beyond the city borders.
All workshops and events are open to anyone over the age of 18 living in the city of Brighton and Hove or with a BN postcode who has never worked as a professional artist.
Everything is sold on a pay what you can basis. If you are on a low income you could pay anything between £1 and £3. If you are earning around £20k you could pay between £3 and £7. If you are earning over £30k you could pay between £7 and £15. You decide.
If the cost of travelling to any of these events is going to be a barrier, there’s help with public transport costs available. Please contact us and we will talk to you about this – in confidence, naturally.
