Encountering Encounters: The 10th Anniversary Book

Encountering Encounters is a book that celebrates our 10th anniversary. It describes the first decade of our community art project embedded in the exciting, quirky and arty city of Brighton & Hove. In 68-pages, the book tells the story of how Encounters has evolved and learnt how to make a contribution to the community. To buy your copy of the book go to the ‘get in touch’ page.

Our Winter Show 2020

Our show last year explored feelings, perceptions, fears and hopes of Encounters’ artists as words like Pandemic, Lockdown and Quarantine were repeated incessantly, becoming the Zeitgeist of our times.
