EVENT: ABCD Cultural Recovery – Right Here, Right Now
An open session to reflect on the Brighton & Hove ABCD cultural recovery plan activities so far and where next for the creative industries.
Following our recent Igniter events as part of The ABCD Plan for Cultural Recovery the ABCD team are hosting a further event (in person!) to explore what’s next for Culture in Brighton & Hove.
Right Here, Right Now: Where next for culture in our city, and how?
Wednesday 15th June, 11am – 3pm. The Sound Rooms and on Zoom
An opportunity to review and refresh the ABCD Plan for Cultural Recovery and to input into the future of culture in the city.
A lot has happened since the ABCD Plan for Cultural Recovery in Brighton & Hove was published at the end of 2020. The world has changed, although the pandemic is still with us, and we’ve all learnt and experienced a great deal.
This event will be an Open Space session, so the agenda gets set by participants on the day (see this blog by facilitators the hub about how Open Space works). Feel strongly about what the priorities should be? Got an idea about how we can collaborate more effectively? A provocation for the sector at large? Brilliant. Bring your thoughts, and invite your peers to explore them with you. Not got a specific idea, but keen to debate the future? That’s great too.
always possible were commissioned to record, edit and produce some teaser videos that could be used to get people thinking ahead of the event.
Bobby Brown and Ella Burns have got the ball rolling with some inspirational provocations.
You can take part in person or online, with dedicated facilitators for each group. There are a limited number of small bursaries for freelancers, which will be allocated on a first come first served basis, and there is an access budget to support people with particular needs.
Please register here by Monday 13 June.

The ABCD Plan for Cultural Recovery in Greater Brighton runs until the end of 2022 and has so far raised over £350k for the cultural sector in the city. The Plan is overseen by an independent group of people formed of a Governance Group and a series of Working Groups. Its aim is to create paid work and professional opportunities for creative workers in the city, developing a more inclusive cultural offer and encouraging partnership work to strengthen the creative sector in the long term. Partners include Brighton & Hove City Council, Arts Council England, Brilliant Brighton Business Improvement District, the Pebble Trust and many funded arts organisations in the city.
