Touring across Sussex
As part of the Brighton Festival, award-winning contemporary designer Morag Myerscough celebrates the spirit of seminal 1960s Los Angeles artist Corita Kent in Belonging, her first ever mobile installation. Co-commissioned by Brighton Festival and Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft, it is a bright, bold, touring bandstand programmed in conjunction with communities across Sussex, inviting them to reflect on the concept of ‘belonging’ by making banners to adorn its crown and programming a diverse range of local performers to use it as a stage. The installation will then be taken on a countywide tour of festivals and community events. The Belonging Bandstand launches on the beach level next to the i360, tours to Your Place venues in Brighton and on to the South of England Show at Ardingly, Crawley Festival, Newhaven, Ditchling and Coastal Currents Arts Festival in Hastings, taking on a different local character with each new iteration as the placard formation of the crown is changed to show off the communities’ own designs, and as the bandstand is programmed with local performers. The bandstand kicks of its run with a day of music curated by BIMM on Saturday May 12.
