Strike a Light has confirmed that it will be curating an event at Fabrica gallery on Thursday 6th September 11-4pm on the theme of Rituals as part of the national Heritage Open Days events which are open to all, and free!
We are really excited about the event which will feature amongst others:
A series of events celebrating the role of ritual in our lives through a contemporary slide reel of memory and family rituals, a dance event, a talk, an Armchair Critics event, and a drop-in workshops with two artists – Jane Fordham, and Clare Nias.
Historian Sarah Tobias will also be giving an interactive talk about Victorian Death & Mourning, apt given that Fabrica is based in an old church!
And Catherine Tajima Powell will be exhibiting her ‘Traces’ work for the event. All washed down with free tea and biscuits! Now there’s a ritual!
Fabrica is a visual arts organisation based in a former Regency church in the heart of Brighton that commissions contemporary visual art installations specific to the building. There is capacity for 150 persons.
