Strike a Light is a not for profit community arts organisation, based in Sussex, that uses peoples life stories and memories to engage a wide range of groups in creative and heritage activities, and making art to transform public and private spaces.
On Saturday 25th April 2015 Strike a Light will be hosting a free and specially created event Breaking Bread at Brighton’s Open Market.
This unique project brings together Brighton’s past, present and future bread baking traditions to create and record a public collective memory, ways to encourage the everyday act of making bread in the home again, and enabling people to connect through the physical act of Breaking Bread together.
Forming a final event in a wider project about bread and baking in Brighton and Hove, this is an open day drop-in to participate in the making of a freshly baked large-scale communal bread, broken and shared with visitors to the event. The event will also host a variety of talks, workshops, and exhibition, tasting and more.
Exhibited at the event will be archive display of recipes and reminiscences of Brighton baking with a pop-up display. We invite visitors to add to the collection with their memories and recollections of baking and bakers in the city.
We are looking for volunteers to support the running of the event day. Below are the volunteer role specifications (clickon the links) for this project.
