What We Do

Strike a Light – Arts & Heritage is a community interest company.

We focus on creatively exploring people’s life stories and local memories through projects with diverse outcomes.

We do this through funded activities, exhibitions, books, reminiscence and oral history, heritage, arts and crafts, and more strategically with: Audience development, evaluation, learning plans and schools’ engagement. We offer training, consultancy, partnerships, and studio space.

We deliver projects, activities and support for venues, arts organisations, archives, educational settings and local authorities, engaging groups including older people, intergenerational participants, children, and clients in creative and heritage activities.

Based in Brighton, Strike a Light works with and for the wider community across Sussex.

As a skilled and professional organisation with a team of independent associates, we offer a varied team with the experience to meet your requirements. We deliver projects, activities and support for heritage venues, arts organisations, archives, educational settings and local authorities.
