Pride Cultural Development Fund supports two local schools

Local schools receive £1,000 from Pride Cultural Development Fund.

AS PART of their community engagement through the Pride Cultural Development Fund, Brighton & Hove Pride challenged all local junior and primary schools to create an A4 artwork that represented what they loved about Brighton & Hove.

EACH school ran an internal competition and the 2 winning entries were put forward to a judging panel made up of Pride staff, volunteers and local author Shanni Collins.

The panel was unable to decide on an overall winner so the £1,000 prize was split between Cleo Curtis from Hove Junior School and Etain Wedderburn from Carlton Hill Primary School.

The presentation of cheques and tickets to LoveBN1Fest for all entrants was made by Paul Kemp, Director of Brighton & Hove Pride, at the Jubilee Library where you can see all winning entries as part of Pride’s Colour My World exhibition.

Paul Kemp said: “We were truly delighted by the response to our schools’ challenge and by some of the stunning and varied artwork we received. We hope to build on this first challenge to make it an annual event so even more young people get involved, and look forward to seeing what the winning schools will do with the prize money.”

Located in two city centre venues, Jubilee Library and the BMECP Centre, the stunning Colour My World exhibition includes creative contributions from over 60 artists, filmmakers and activists from the UK, Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia and the Americas. It will be open till August 5.

Featuring main stage artists, loads of family friendly entertainment, circus skills, performance artists, cabaret, dance tents, Street food village, accessibly tent and WellBeing area plus much more.
