Strike a Light – Arts & Heritage are pleased to have been commissioned to become a hub in Brighton and Hove by the Big Ideas Company to develop activities with local community groups to explore the history of the Labour Corps – service personnel during World War I, and often forgotten in this part of history.
From October 2017, we will facilitate a series of open access community focussed life history activities in three parts of East Brighton . These will be aimed at encouraging local residents, and specifically older participants to engage with their memories and lives to create memory books celebrating the sharing of local memories.
Our first free sessions take place at Moulsecoomb Library on Wednesday 11th October 10-12pm and again on Wednesday 25th October 10-12pm. Come along and try our activities out!
We will be delivering these activities in partnership with Brighton and Hove Libraries and Information Service as part of both National Libraries Week which runs from the 9th – 15th October and World Mental Health Day also in October 2017.
