Our Place

Child's drawing of a rainbow

Principal Investigators: Lucy Robinson and Chris Warne

This project builds on 2018-19’s DIT Digital project (DIT Digital: Your Place) and was the result of a successful collaborative bid to the Brighton Festival ‘Your Place/Our Place’ scheme. The project aimed to intensify impact, not just for those who participate in the workshops, but for the community and Festival participants more generally.  The mentors contributed to the production of the other outcomes of the project, namely an Open-Access Educational Resource (OER) aimed at student and community historians who are interested in deploying the digital to revivify the mediation of local histories, which will also serve as an Impact Toolkit, which will be of interest to academic historians seeking to use the digital as a way to present their work to new audiences.   

Community meets creativity for the fifth year running as residents of Hangleton and Knoll, East Brighton, Moulsecoomb and Bevendean welcome Our Place as part of this year’s Brighton Festival. Our Place is a celebration of creativity, working in partnership with community steering groups to support them to select, programme and produce art projects, performances and events for their communities, taking place in their neighbourhoods.
