Illustrator and AOI Member Sarah Edmonds is creating a town – come and help her build it!
During this lively interactive exhibition, the gallery will be transformed into an imaginative Information Centre. Visit and find out more about this work in progress town – see its landmarks, meet the locals and add your own suggestions to the noticeboard.
Alphabetown is an ongoing project, with a building, location or character for each letter. It made its first appearance in Worthing last year, followed by a residency at Oxford’s Story Museum for two months earlier this year. As the imaginary town travels around it picks up inspiration from its host neighbourhood – expect plenty of winding lanes, vibrant characters, excellent views and of course seagulls in the Brighton edition!
Visitors are encouraged to become architects as well as tourists and add their own points of interest to the growing town. What places or spaces would you build if you could invent or improve a town? You are invited to share the best bits of memorable towns, places you’ve called home and the community that surrounds you.
This interactive exhibition is a journey into Sarah’s colourful mind, with building blocks to play with, postcards to send and workshops to take part in. Put on your hard hat and let your imagination run riot.
Suitable for all ages.
