Share your memories of RSCH – free summer workshops

Brighton-based arts collective Nimbus is working with graphic novelist and storyteller Daniel Locke to create a permanent artwork celebrating the history and heritage of the Royal Sussex County Hospital to be sited in the new hospital.

As part of this legacy project for Connect, artist Daniel Locke is hosting free creative workshops this summer so everyone can share their stories of the RSCH & enjoy seeing those memories become part of the special new heritage project, The Crucible.

Maybe you were born at the hospital or had a baby there, visited a family member, worked – or still work – there or were a patient in the past? Daniel will introduce you to the techniques of making a graphic novel through hands on drawing and collage. Or, maybe you simply want to share your story, come along for tea and cake, and bring along your memories, including photos or other memorabilia as a source of inspiration for the group to create beautiful illustrations.

The Crucible is a new initiative for collecting memories and stories about Royal Sussex County Hospital, to capture its heritage and share the role it has played in the lives of Brighton & Hove residents, including staff, patients and the wider community.
