Lighthouse

Lighthouse is a digital culture agency based in Brighton. We support, commission and exhibit work by artists and filmmakers.

Lighthouse creates vibrant, inspirational programmes that show how important artists and filmmakers are in a changing media landscape.

We work with digital art and moving image, which we present in our own venue in Brighton and beyond, nationally and internationally. By supporting artists and filmmakers, through commissioning, exhibition and professional development, we provide a platform for digital artists and creators to demonstrate that digital culture is about more than technology and tools; it is about ideas, emotion, learning, and aesthetics.

Lighthouse also runs the UK’s leading mentoring programme for filmmakers – Guiding Lights – which supports rising film talent by connecting them with some of the industry’s greatest names, including Sam Mendes, Alex Garland, Nick Hornby and Barbara Broccoli.

Lighthouse is a vibrant venue for events in Brighton. As well as hosting our own events, we provide spaces for commercial hire.

Progress Bar: Graphic Novels

  • 7 July 2016 6:30-9:30pm

This edition of Progress Bar is inspired by Lighthouse’s Wellcome Trust supported graphic novel Out of Nothing. A collaboration between graphic novelist Daniel Locke, artist David Blandy and author, broadcaster and scientist Adam Rutherford, the work traces the journey of a fiery-tempered young girl as she crosses time and space to tell the story of creativity, scientific discovery and human knowledge

The evening will feature a talk by David Blandy and Daniel Locke about the birth of the solar system, the development of complex life on Earth, taking photographs on other planets, and the first Martians. Joining them will be award-winning comic creator Karrie Fransman who will give insight into her creative process and talk about the books that go into making books. Plus, you’ll get a sneak preview of Out of Nothing’s artwork and David Blandy will play music from the history of hip-hop.

Admission

Tickets: £5 / £4 concs (full-time students or anyone in receipt of an income-based benefit, please bring ID/proof with you)
