The Team

Brighton Artists Network is run by a team of volunteer administrators.

The Administrator Team is open to any Brighton Artists Member to join. We meet weekly on a Monday to discuss the direction of the organisation and plan the week ahead. The team changes every three months to ensure a diversity of voices from our membership are represented. To join in January please email

She has exhibited in Brighton, London and Eastbourne on themes of resilience and student debt. In 2019, she curated an exhibition to challenge prejudices around the LGBTQ+ community. Her work aims to represent the experiences of self-identifying women from around the world and raise awareness of social and environmental issues.

Zoe Toolan

Instagram: @zklt.artist

Zoe is a precarious working, multidisciplinary artist from Yorkshire living in Brighton, with one foot in the conceptual, one foot in the visual and one foot in the everything in-between. Her work centres around live art and social practices with anything she creates having an inherent sense of unpredictability and ephemerality; as is life. Education underpins her work and she is passionate about radical pedagogy, drawing and whisky, treating every teaching role as an exciting live, participatory event and a vital part of her own practice and learning.
