Strike a Light is an arts and heritage community interest company. We use people’s life stories and memories and make art to transform public and private spaces. Strike a Light aims to work with and for the arts and heritage community in the South East.

As a skilled and professional organisation with a team of independent associates, we offer a varied team with the experience to meet your requirements. We deliver projects, activities and support for heritage venues, arts organisations, archives, educational settings and local authorities.

We do this through funded activities, reminiscence and oral history, hidden heritage, mosaic and crafts as well as more strategically with: Audience development planning, access, audience development, evaluations, learning plans and schools engagement.
