  • 1-2-1 day with Susan Diab

    1-2-1s provide an opportunity for artists to discuss their practice in a private focused session with another artist. They last 45 mins and are for artists at any stage of their careers.

    The sessions can be used in a number of ways, to be determined by the artists themselves. They can for example:

    Provide a sounding board for new ideas
    Give critical feedback on work
    Signpost to relevant resources and information.
    Review written material including funding applications

    Susan Diab is a visual artist with experience of making work and exhibiting in public galleries and with artist-led initiatives. She is a member of the studio group APEC in Hove.

  • Conversation Piece: A brief history of fishing in Brighton

    Monday 17 November, 2.30–4pm

    Join the host of Conversation Piece, Lorenza Ippolito and her guest Alan Hayes to take a look at how fishing has changed in Brighton over the last century. Alan is a local fisherman who was born in Ship St and christened in Holy Trinity the church which is now Fabrica.

    Modern fishermen face tough challenges, facing dwindling stocks and polluted seas. Do they recognise a need for regulation? How has the industry in Brighton changed? What did it look like 50 years ago and what is its future?

    Conversation Piece is a relaxed, heritage-focused discussion group led by Lorenza Ippolito. Topics for conversation focus on local history and debate, drawing on themes in the current exhibition. Each event welcomes a speaker with specialist knowledge on the theme of choice.

    Refreshments provided.

  • Fabrica Film Club: All is Lost

    Thursday 13 November, doors and bar 6.30pm, film starts 7pm

    Released last year, JC Chandor’s critically-acclaimed film follows a nameless protagonist (Robert Redford) in a fight for survival on the open sea. Following a collision with a rogue shipping container, we witness Redford battle to keep his vessel afloat on a vast, unforgiving ocean.

    Here is a film that exists purely in the moment, bouncing us inexorably from the bad to the worse. There is no journey towards redemption no cosy life lesson lying in wait at the end. There’s just the sea and the sky and the struggle to survive. Chandor’s ironclad minimalism has you gasping for air – Xan Brooks

    Free entry, donations welcome. Nibbles, a low-cost bar, cosy chairs and beanbags make this a warm and welcoming event for all.

    This event is free but places are limited and booking is recommended. To book please visit the Eventbrite page, speak to a member of the gallery team or call 01273 778646.

  • Applying for Open Submission Exhibitions

    Wednesday 19 November, 6-8pm

    A Workshop led by Susan Diab

    A good opportunity for artists to get their work shown is to apply to take part in Open Submission Exhibitions. At this participatory workshop you will be encouraged to think about when and why to apply for open submissions and have the chance to show and discuss applications. Bring a current CV, images of your work (as jpegs) and an artist statement for feedback about the quality of your application materials. Bringing along previous applications you have made, whether successful or not, could also provide useful points for discussion. As a selector for the East Sussex Open in 2013 Susan Diab can provide good insights into the dos and don’ts of applying for open submissions. Participants will also get the chance to look through each other’s applications and generate ideas that way.

    Booking essential as spaces are limited: please email Caitlin caitlin.heffernan@fabrica.org.uk to book your place. Please note this workshop will take place at the Friends Meeting House, Ship Street.
