Dr Helen Johnson, Principal Lecturer in psychology in the Centre for Arts and Wellbeing, said: "The centre is proud to be supporting this exciting and important exhibition, which celebrates local community projects, narratives and socially-engaged art."
Chloe Hoare, Community and Learning Programme Manager at Phoenix, says: “Providing access to the arts is at the heart of our community engagement programme. We want everyone to feel able to participate in creative opportunities at Phoenix Art Space and we enjoy working closely with the Phoenix Community Association to ensure that our neighbours feel welcome here. Since the pandemic we have taken our work to people’s doorsteps in the form of free art packs and online courses, encouraging our local community to take part in something creative.”
Phoenix Art Space was established as a charity in 1995 in central Brighton to provide a range of creative opportunities including: 100 affordable artists’ studios, two public galleries, plus around 15 free exhibitions per year.
