Place-Based Arts: Brighton Writes
Friday 29 May 2015
Sallis Benney Theatre, Grand Parade, Brighton UK.

Join us next week for this exciting one-day event on Place-Based Arts, exploring how location can provide diverse and rich triggers for writing and other arts based practices.

Highlights include keynotes from Iain Sinclair and Richard Kerridge, round table debates with artists and writers who have used Brighton as a source for their practice, a film screening of Ian McDonald's Brighton Bandits, and a range of parallel sessions with academics and artists presenting work and ideas relating to place.
