Art on show in Brighton and Hove & East and West Sussex
Brighton Festival and Invisible Flock invite you to create a map of happiness in Brighton. This life-affirming project will attempt to create a portrait of people’s lives, taking happy memories from local residents and weaving them into a spectacular live event that celebrates the happiness of Brighton.
For ten days, the ONCA Gallery will be transformed into a giant 3D map of Brighton on which you can plot your own happy memories. A first kiss, a longed-for baby, a chance encounter: where did it happen and how happy did it make you feel? As the people of Brighton mark their moments of happiness, we can all explore what has made people happy – and where.
10th – 19th May 2014, ONCA Gallery
Open every day 11am – 7pm
Live Shows: Friday 23rd – Sunday 25th May 2015, 7:30pm at The Old Market
With the outstanding six-piece band Hope & Social, the happy memories collected from Brighton and throughout the country will be shared in all their beautiful, tragic, ridiculous and occasionally mundane glory in Bring the Happy Live. Pitched somewhere between a wedding and a wake, this performance is an extravagant event specially created to celebrate happiness and where we find it.
