Event description

Description

Whitehawk, Volume 1 is an exhibition of documentary photography taken by local residents Lisa Pettitt and Sharon Scaife and organised by Curtis James.

Curtis, Lisa and Sharon are holding an informal exhibition launch on Tues 11 June, from 7pm. Please register here if you can make it.

The exhibition is the culmination of a year-long documentary process and aims to tell diverse, inside stories about Whitehawk: on death and life, housing, (extended) family and chicken pie.

Whitehawk is an estate originally developed by Brighton Council between 1933 and 1937, and added to in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. Lisa has lived in the area since 1997 and Sharon since 2009. They had no formal photography experience until a year ago. Curtis James grew up on the Bristol Estate and went to school in Whitehawk in the 1980s.

The exhibition is free to attend and takes place in the beating heart of Whitehawk, the Crew Club (started in 1999 by Lorraine and Darren Snow in response to the fatal stabbing of a 16 year-old on the Whitehawk estate). It runs from Weds 12 June to Saturday 15 June. Opening hours are 10.30am to 6pm every day, with tours/discussion at 11am, 1pm and 3pm on Saturday 15 June.
