Puppet Animation Celebrating Brighton's Stories

23 April 2012


Artist from University of Brighton, Lucinda Abel collaboration with Patcham High School


Puppet animation debut on tour in various FREE exhibitions as part of the Brighton Fringe and Youth Arts Festival


Touring exhibition of puppet animations celebrating Brighton's diverse seafront culture with Year 9 students at Patcham High School. Applying the Olympic value of excellence to the process and craftsmanship of puppetry to explore our local heritage. Students share their personal and imagined stories from Brighton Seafront to give a new perspective on our sense of place in the world in 2012. Using the 2012 Cultural Olympiad as a platform, the puppet animations will be entered into a competition to be shown and our unique culture shared to people from all over the world at 2012 London Olympic stadiums.


“It was excellent because it was inspiring, and fun”

“Interesting, exciting, a creative outlet”


After returning from a scholarship to the rich and artful Japan on the BA Performance and Visual Art course at University of Brighton, Artist Lucinda Abel was inspired to create a project engaging communities into an exploration into the craft of puppetry, discussing British culture and question the role of the artist in the school community. The projects aims to create networks between the University of Brighton and the Arts Specialist School; Patcham High School and celebrate these valuable exchanges. However the crucial roles of Community Arts Co-ordinator have been cut at the School, threatening the future creation for such empowering and innovative projects.
