About

Does what it says on the tin.

The network for artists of all disciplines living and working in Brighton.

Who we are

We are Brighton’s first interdisciplinary, artist-led network.

We believe who is or isn’t an artist isn’t for us to decide: an artist, to us, is anyone that defines themselves as an artist. 

Our members includes people who make things, people who write things, people who perform things, and anyone else who might not fit either of these categories, or all of them at once.  It includes people with a well established creative practice, and those who have just begun to think of themselves as creative.

You can find out more about our members in our Directory.

The Network is entirely run by volunteers. Click here to see our past and current team.

What we do

Members Bulletin

Our monthly bulletin is a digest of news, events and opportunities by our members to our members. It includes an “events, performances and exhibitions” section, a “notice board” section to advertise wanted and offered items and skills swaps, and an “opportunities” section for call outs.

You can view one of our latest bulletin here.

Directory

Events

We run events for our members to come together, share skills, support each other’s projects and socialise.

All of our events are £10 for non members and £5 for fee paying members; with free places available for those who can’t afford to attend – no questions asked.

View upcoming events here.

Information Service

Are you looking for a regular artists meet up, rehearsal space or low cost AV equipment hire? If it’s happening in Brighton, there’s a strong chance we’ve heard of it!

If you have a question, or if you have a space, resource or regular event you would like us to keep on file to share with any members enquiring, just drop us an email at info@brightonartistsnetwork.co.uk.

Please note we only volunteer one day a week, so our responses can be a tad slow!
