Before lockdown, artists Walter & Zoniel were preparing to bring a brand new artwork to Fabrica as part of Brighton Festival 2020. Working together with communities in Moulsecoomb and Bevendean on a unique outdoor installation, the project's plans had to be put on hold when social distancing was implemented due to the coronavirus crisis.
A Simple Act of Wonder will continue over the next few months and as part of Brighton Festival at Home, Walter & Zoniel will share project news and the making process from their home studio via a series of video diaries, explaining what we can expect to see from an artwork that celebrates human connection and our experiences of joy in unprecedented times.
Help us continue with what we do best
Arts venues and festivals across the country are facing extremely difficult times. In March, 65% of our income disappeared overnight due to coronavirus and the cancellation of Brighton Festival was the first in its 53-year history. As a charity we believe the arts inspire and are a catalyst for positive change. Now more than ever, we need the arts to brighten our days and lift our spirits. Help us continue with what we do best - to support artists and partners and return stronger for audiences and the wider community. Please consider a donation to Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival.
