Thursday 11 September 2014
Fabrica Gallery, 40 Duke Street, Brighton
On Thursday 11 September (1-4pm), Fabrica gallery, in collaboration with arts and heritage organisation Strike a Light, will be hosting a free and specially created event Centennial. Forming part of the nationwide Heritage Open Days free events across England and Wales, this is an afternoon drop-in to commemorate the beginning of the centenary of World War I.
It profiles and examines aspects of our experiences of the war through the use of diaries, moving image, wartime songs, creative workshops, and talks, exploring our shared and personal memories relating to the war, and the stories with which we were left. The event will offer art activities, film showings, workshop activities, talks, and free afternoon tea. In addition, Fabrica will be revealing a plaque honouring the parishioners who fought and died in WWI, hidden from public view for decades.
The event will be followed at 6:30pm by a free evening film showing of musical romp ‘Oh! What a Lovely War’ with low cost bar and nibbles.
Aimed at all and especially older people, visitors can relax and encounter visual art in an entrancing, fun, creative way. This event also welcomes everyone including families, babies and children of all ages. Free transport is available for the elderly and disabled. Please get in touch to arrange this.
