We’re excited to introduce the artists delivering our Alternative Tours of Brighton & Hove, as part of the ABCD Plan for Cultural Recovery.
About the ABCD Plan:
The disruption of the pandemic brought together over 100 creatives in Brighton & Hove to explore how arts & culture can be more inclusive, sustainable and collaborative in the City in the future. This resulted in a recovery plan that runs to the end of 2022 and has so far raised over £250k 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. Our aims are to create paid work and professional opportunities for creative workers in the City, to develop a more inclusive cultural offer and to encourage partnership working to strengthen the creative sector in the long term. Our 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.

Ebony Rose Dark
A sensorial tour of Brighton that will use smell, touch and hearing to navigate and explore the city.
Draw to perform with Enayball
Movement guides the tool in a tour combining drawing with performance. Developed at Brighton University, the Enayball is a new tool that makes drawing accessible to people who use wheelchairs or have other access needs. On the tour you’ll see how the drawings are made, view a range of artwork and maybe make your own mark. This tour is being created by Ram Samocha (Draw to Perform) and Eli Heath and Pete Barr (Enayball).
