An exhibition of new photography by University of Brighton students commissioned by Photoworks and Together The People that will show at TTP and during October at Brighton Photo Biennial 2016 (BPB16) as well as several of the city’s libraries over the summer. The two Brighton festivals are teaming up for the first time and Photoworks will also be running family-friendly photography workshops at the Photoworks Photography Tent at Together The People. This project has been supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.

The idea of TTP is to celebrate music, food, community, film and arts within the city of Brighton by delivering a high quality, creative, family friendly and socially aware event. In 2015 the festival was powered by bio-diesel & solar technology, re-cycled over 5.3 tonnes of waste and generated over £2,000 in public donations for local homeless charity ‘Brighton Housing Trust’.

Tickets are on sale and can be purchased from Seetickets, Concorde 2 or Resident (01273 606312)
