We are delighted to be working with Brighton Dome and Brighton Festival to deliver a new project starting in January 2020 to capture memories of events, performance and shows at Brighton Dome over the years.
Graduations, tea dances, roller derbies, pop icons, Suffragette protests, cutting-edge art, silent discos, hairdressing championships, tear-jerking theatre, fierce debates and Eurovision winners. We’ve seen it all.
‘And since being converted into a performance venue 150 years ago,
our stages have been graced with a dazzling array of illustrious artists, writers, dancers, musicians, actors and directors – from Harold Pinter to Maya Angelou, Muddy Waters, Ella Fitzgerald and Stevie Wonder to David Bowie, Jimi Hendrix, Leonard Cohen and all the late Dancing Queens in between.’
As a volunteer, you will plan and hold interviews to creatively re-tell moving memories from Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival visitors.
This work will end up being part of an exciting story-telling project
about one of the most vital arts centres in heart of Brighton & Hove,
and the memories collected will be shared with generations to come.

Speakers include – Dr Diana Wilkins – Shalom Sussex Research Coordinator, Gideon Reuveni – Director of the Centre for German-Jewish Studies, and Professor Mark Connelly a specialist in Jewish memorialisation post-WWI and Jewish veterans in the 1920s.
The project focuses on the contribution Jewish people in Sussex made during the First World War – both on the home-front and abroad on the battlefield.
To mark the end of the Centenary of the First World War, between March 2019-March 2020, this project is enabling people in Sussex to come together to preserve the memories and heritage of the Jewish people who lived locally during and post the First World War to collect these hidden histories.
Strike a Light – Arts & Heritage is a community interest company. We focus on exploring life stories and history through creative projects. Based in Brighton, Strike a Light works with and for the wider community across Sussex
