The Crucible Project

Brighton-based arts collective Nimbus is working on a legacy project, The Crucible, for BSUH as part of Connect, the public art programme for the redevelopment of the Royal Sussex County Hospital. Nimbus will be working with artist Daniel Locke to create a permanent artwork celebrating the history and heritage of the RSCH to be sited in the new hospital.

The project will explore the history and heritage of the RSCH, drawing on Heritage resources from Heritage Lottery Funded project, the Royal Sussex County Hospital A People’s History from the 19th Century to the 21st Century, which is identifying, preserving and interpreting the social heritage of the hospital leading up to the development.

It will explore and expand on these through engagement and consultation with current staff, patients and local community RSCH in order to create an Artwork. For more information about these events keep a look out on the news page or CONNECT’s facebook
