About this Event

***Free community arts event celebrating creative careers **

Join us on 10 August to celebrate and showcase the careers of young creative people and exciting innovative community arts projects from the City of Brighton.

On Saturday 10 August (12:00 to 16:00) at Grand Parade, University of Brighton, the Michael Aldrich Foundation will be showcasing 4 artists from 4 different disciplines; from poetry to woodcraft, to sculpture and earth saving design.

There will be a specially curated exhibition of the Aldrich Collection of contemporary art which uniquely charts the history of art education in Brighton from the 1800s and the opportunity to see work from the Foundation’s latest community arts project with Blind Veterans UK.

We are very excited to be putting on this first free community event which will aim to shine a spotlight on some fantastic creative businesses. If you ever wondered what it was like to be a designer, maker, artist or even a poet, come along and chat to our young creatives and maybe take part in a workshop or two.

On the day you can expect exhibitions, demonstrations and workshops from Designer Tom Meades, Maker Eleanor Owens, Artist Jack Durling and Poet Tommy Sissons.

The Michael Aldrich Foundation will be raising money to support arts education through sharing our collection and fund future community arts projects. There will also be the chance to win original pieces of artwork by the next generation of artists.

We look forward to seeing you there.
