Special Daytime Events – Fabrica and Strike a Light participate in Fabrica’s gallery programme & enjoy contemporary art
Strike a Light will be creating a new Special Daytime Event at Fabrica Gallery in Brighton this autumn.
The event takes place at Fabrica on Thursday 10th September from 1-4pm as part of the wider The Boys on the Plaque project. This event is also part of the wider national Heritage Open Days events, so it’s all free! This event is also in partnership with the Brighton and Hove Libraries service.
Strike a Light has just booked a date for new events and film showings at Fabrica gallery this year for it’s special Daytime events, as part of their Growing an Older Audience project and linking with its’ Heritage Lottery funded The Boys on the Plaque project.
These will have a special World War 1 related theme – linking in with the centenary commemorations which are happening nationally in the UK between 2014-18. We will be curating this daytime event, and following it up with a related evening film. The event will host creative workshops, exhibitions, talks, and a free cafe.
We are currently planning this year’s theme, so please check our web pages over the summer for updates on what exciting things we are planning to have at our next event.
Aimed at all, and especially older people. Visitors can relax, and encounter visual art in entrancing, fun, creative way.

You can see more below about previous events of this kind which Strike a Light has organised for Fabrica.
Fabrica worked with Strike A Light to provide the unique Special Daytime Events outside of exhibitions, during 2011 – 2014.
Each of the events explored a specific theme, and offered a mixture of drop-in arts activities, screenings, talks and performances which could act as a taster for how Fabrica responds to ideas, and what we have on offer throughout the ongoing programme. We aim to give participants a unique, enjoyable day which is an un-pressured introduction to Fabrica, or a chance to catch up with us and other participants.
‘To learn and see what was going on. I didn’t understand what Fabrica meant. What it was all about. So I wanted to come and see.’

With each event, we learned more about our visitors, and were able to hone the structure and thematic planning of the day into a more successful and enjoyable experience.
‘It has inspired me, because it’s so different.’
