It is serendipitous that, on the same day as Disability Pride Brighton – AND also the day before (Saturday, 8th and Sunday, 9th July) – there is another exciting project happening just around the corner in the Founders Room of Brighton Dome. It is an interactive exhibition bringing awareness and discussion about invisible disability. Root Experience will also be having a stall at Disability Pride Brighton.
Root Experience is a local arts charity who use the power of play and creativity for positive change. This is what they say about their event: ‘Hidden Project worked with a group of artists, living with invisible disabilities, alongside other artists and designers, to creatively explore, over a period of 8 weeks, the experience of living in Brighton and Hove with a hidden condition. The Hubbub is an interactive exhibition of the work produced in the Hidden Project, and is designed to help the people of Brighton and Hove to better understand the challenges of living here with an invisible disability. We will be promoting ‘The Hubbub’, it’s a free event, at Brighton Dome, and is supported by the Arts Council England, Big Lottery Fund and The Betty Messenger Foundation.”
