Free Brighton creative schools workshops for Dr Blighty Indian soldiers project all month
Organised by Nicola Benge of Strike a Light, Jo Palache from Brighton Museum came to give a talk to to Conversation Cafe group (part of The Boys on the Plaque) project about Indian Soldiers in Brighton in World War I, and to share learning on this topic for the Dr Blighty project.
Thank you to those who attended our Conversations Cafe session this week. We hosted a session viewing the amazingly drawn diorama of the first day of the battle of the Somme (1st July 1916) by cartoonist Joe Sacco. There is a fascinating 6 minute short about it which you can view here. It is available in the graphic novel section of Jubilee Library and I urge you to look at it. It’s so long that our whole group held each section of it!
The main theme though of our session this month was with the very well-informed Stoolball England officer Anita Broad, discussing all things related to this Sussex based sport and its’ link to World War I and rehabilitation
We’re pleased to add the historian Douglas d’Enno to our Conversations Cafe event for Wednesday April 13th 2.30-4.30pm at Fabrica gallery in Brighton. The event is free and all are welcome. Refreshments will be provided.
