About Fabrica

Fabrica is Brighton & Hove’s centre for contemporary art. Now in our 22nd year at the former Holy Trinity Church, we have accrued an outstanding track record in commissioning artists to create new, often extraordinary works for Fabrica’s unique space and audiences.

As a registered charity with an educational mission we are committed to generating interest and excitement about art and creativity, through and around learning. Maintaining this core value underpins our capacity to attract, retain and develop a team of 200 volunteers who are passionate about communicating what Fabrica has to offer, in the gallery and to the wider community.

Our gallery education activities open up new ways of thinking and experiencing Fabrica’s exhibitions. Our dedicated programmes of work engage and attract older people, those with disabilities and teenagers who might not readily visit an art gallery or museum. Increasingly, these programmes are being created in partnership with others: community groups and statutory organisations, arts organisations in the city and abroad, and by the participants themselves, as Fabrica has become progressively embedded in the city and its communities.
