Fabrica is an art gallery in the heart of Brighton town centre, committed to promoting understanding of contemporary visual art and craft. It opened in March 1996 in the redundant Holy Trinity Church with the support of South East Arts, Brighton Borough Council, The Foundation for Sport and the Arts and Chichester Diocese. The original idea grew out of the ambitions of Red Herring Studios, in Hove, to provide access to contemporary visual art.
