NEWS: The Brighton Paradox – a podcast investigation

A unique new audio series begins this autumn

    
An always possible project in collaboration with Plus X Innovation Hub

We are connecting tens of thousands of residents, entrepreneurs, change-makers, students, investors and creatives who are invested in the future of Brighton & Hove… to the ideas that are shaping it.

We’re glad you’re here.

What is The Brighton Paradox?

The Brighton Paradox will be a unique six-part audio series, investigating Brighton & Hove’s creative and economic potential in uncertain times.

What to expect?

This project marks just over 20 years since city status was awarded. Together we’ll be celebrating and amplifying Brighton & Hove’s greatest assets and ideas – whilst working out what lies at the heart of its biggest challenges (and what can be done about them).

The Brighton Paradox features previously unreleased music by Fatboy Slim and new instrumentals by Brighton-based Noraay, as well as exclusive interviews with over 60 contributors.

Who is it for?

With so many people involved in what makes Brighton great, from punks to innovators, techies, activists, educators, charities and beyond. We’ve reached out to a host of those who really know the city.
