Nicola Benge of Strike a Light has been participating in some research about art, reminiscence and communities with Cecile Chevalier – an Associate Tutor and Research Student at Sussex University.

*** Calling residents of East and West Sussex ***

We are currently looking into a venue in Worthing and would appreciate your responses to the following questions:

  • Would you travel to Worthing for a tea dance? 
    N.B. Worthing is easily reachable by train and bus (no.700 from Brighton).
    The venue is a few minutes walk from the train station. (Click here for specific venue location).
  • Do you have any knowledge or connections to Worthing based ballroom, latin or swing dance communities?
  • Call Out: Ragroof and St Paul’s are looking for an intern to help promote the Worthing tea dances. This would begin in the New Year, based at the St Paul’s Centre office, and would involve doing press and PR for the events beginning in March.


    Please reply to this email with your answers.
    We’d be very grateful for your feedback!

We hope to see you at a tea dance soon! Ragroof xx

Conversation Piece

Next week at Fabrica, a colleague of mine Lorenza Ippolito will be facilitating Conversation Piece.

Edward Kibosek will be joining the group at Fabrica gallery to talk about the charity I.T. Skills 4 Rural Kenya and how he managed to work with the local communities in Brighton and Kenya in a symbiotic exchange.

Conversation Piece 6th November 2.30-4.00pm
Afternoon tea and chat

The No Ohlo da Rua collective seek to empower disadvantaged young
people by giving out cameras and asking them to show us how they live
and what they see. Photography, the use of up to date technology in
general, is a question of cash, skills, access and distribution.

Join artist Lorenza Ippolito and Edward Kibosek, trustee of Brighton
based charity I.T. Skills 4 Rural Kenya, to discuss how communities
can help each other through local co-operation and skill sharing
