We are delighted to be working with Brighton Dome and Brighton Festival to deliver a new project starting in 2020 to capture memories of events, performance and shows at Brighton Dome over the years. It is called ‘I Was There’.
Graduations, tea dances, roller derbies, pop icons, Suffragette protests, cutting-edge art, silent discos, hairdressing championships, tear-jerking theatre, fierce debates and Eurovision winners. We’ve seen it all.
‘And since being converted into a performance venue 150 years ago,
our stages have been graced with a dazzling array of illustrious artists, writers, dancers, musicians, actors and directors – from Harold Pinter to Maya Angelou, Muddy Waters, Ella Fitzgerald and Stevie Wonder to David Bowie, Jimi Hendrix, Leonard Cohen and all the late Dancing Queens in between.’
As a volunteer, you will plan and hold interviews to creatively re-tell moving memories from Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival visitors.
This work will end up being part of an exciting story-telling project
about one of the most vital arts centres in heart of Brighton & Hove,
and the memories collected will be shared with generations to come.
