We’ve had a sneak preview of the nearly finished textile banner we’ve been working on for The Orange Lilies project with artist Rosie James and young people in Brighton and Hove, through a series of workshops with young people at Jubilee Library in March 2017.
It’s looking great! We’ll be collecting it in two weeks time as there is still some final stitching to do, but it’s looks amazing and we’re really pleased with it. It measures 2 metres long by 1 metre wide.
When finished this will be installed at Jubilee Library in the city as part of the annual youth festival B fest from 24th May – 4th July 2017 for everyone to view, alongside a series of short films we’ve made with young filmmakers, facilitated by Tracey Gue.
We urge you to come and view it, and find out more about Brighton and Hove history during the Somme, the Home Front, and the lives of The Royal Sussex Regiment in France from 30th June -18th November 1916.
Thanks to Brighton and Hove Libraries Service for hosting this exhibition
