Encountering Encounters: The Book

Encountering Encounters is a book that celebrates the first decade of our community art project embedded in the exciting, quirky and arty city of Brighton & Hove.

This beautifully produced 68-page book tells the story of how Encounters evolved and learnt how to make a contribution to our community.

Summer Show 2021

Welcome to our bold, challenging and provocative exhibition. Artistic Dialogues of Light and Hope determine the curated show, offsetting our troubled and volatile times.

  • 19 and 20 June
  • 25 and 26 June

Our 2021 Artists

Unmissable Khaled paintings in dialogue with Skinner‘s photograph. Bagguley‘s paintings align with Zattarin‘s work in a dialogue of compassion. A vibrant hope installation by Parejo and Anon is in tune with Lieberman‘s Extended Ocean work.

Don’t miss Encounters first digital room. Five international artists – Elizabeth Cemborain, Alonso Galue, H. Do Nacimiento, Ruben Aranguren and Yole Quintero – render their own dialogues of Light and Hope.
