The Festival of BROWN 2012 17th- 21st – held at the Coach House this Year

17 September 2012 - 12:00am at The Coach House

The Festival Of Brown is an arts festival dedicated to that most overlooked of colours – Brown

This year the festival of brown will happen in two different places. after three succesful years in Portugal we are expanding and holding one event in Paradela, Portugal and one in Brighton, England.

From the 17th to the 23rd of september we will gather a group of artists at the Coach House, Kemptown, Brighton in order to create and stage an exhibition/performance the form and style of which will be entirely dependent on the participants. we hope that many of our old friends will join us and we welcome new artists in our continuing celebration of the colour brown.

participants in the festival will not have to pay anything, it will be free. food may be provided.

on the 17th, 19th, 20th, and 21st of september from 6:00pm onwards we will meet at the coach house, a lovely room hidden inside the block of houses on walpole road, brighton and plan our event. we have few preconceptions about the event and we welcome artists in all media to join collectively in its creation, production and realisation. all we know is that it will be open to the public, will take place on sunday the 23rd of september and will celebrate the colour brown.

This is a great opportunity for artists to collaborate in an open, collective project. so often art is pursued alone, but we seek to hunt it in a pack judging that we may have more or different success by this means. we already have expressions of interest from dancers, musicians, writers, videographers, painters and photographers. we hope that you will come too and join this unique and exciting project.

all expressions of interest please to email:
