The Portslade Project

The Portslade Project

Involuntary Park have been developing and implementing an ambitious, long-term public art project, in the form of a series of creative community consultations and events, for the South Portslade area. At the heart of the project is a desire to bridge the existing gap between the local community and the cultural organisations who work here, by creating community-led projects that will build a sustainable culture of arts engagement, place-making and urban regeneration.


The first one of our Portslade projects has been commissioned by HOUSE as part of Brighton Festival‘s events and will take place at BLANK every weekend in May.

We think the time is right for FREE things:

FREE painting

FREE film

FREE knitting

Are You Ready for it?

All of Portslade has been declared an involuntary park.

The only currency valid here is skill (any skill) and the only place to redeem it is at THE EXCHANGE.

Neither an exhibition nor a performance piece but a Pay-What-You-Earn-and-Sponsor-some-ART, artist run Cafe and a workshop the size of a building ..
