Strike a Light – Arts & Heritage is delivering free families workshops in October and November 2018 in venues across Brighton and Hove to look at the theme of The Unremembered – commemorating the Labour Corps service personnel in World War I.

With support from creative facilitators, we’ll be creating articulated puppets on templates designed, created and compiled by children.

We will be using fabric scraps, wrapping paper and wall paper to create overlaid uniforms for these puppets and to bring them to life.

The puppet theme for this project is two-fold – An engaging and accessible way to teach young people and community groups who are unaware of this lost period of history about the Labour Corps, and also puppets as a symbol for the role of the Labour Corps in terms of having no control over their work or location, that they were moved around like mules and treated as such.

This will help to remember some of the soldiers who served with the Labour Corps and their link with Sussex and draw this forgotten history into the light.

We’re 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.

Strike a Light partnered with AfriKàBa, the Hastings based festival of African and Caribbean heritage, arts and culture, alongside Hastings Borough Council, and the Electric Palace Cinema.

AfriKàBa is an annual festival that showcases high quality work from artists with African and Caribbean heritage and engages audiences with unique and enriching experiences.

We had funding to provide free activities that positively promote African Caribbean culture, crafts and food including:

  • African Caribbean family activities for the public, all ages and backgrounds.
  • Drumming and singing workshops
  • Storytelling for families
  • Demonstration and tasting of East African  cooking at the flagship facility Classroom on the Coast.

We received funding from the Chalk Cliff Trust to deliver these activities and for this many thanks!
