First Friday – 7 November 2014: John Varah of Same Sky

After a fabulous run of over three years and dozens of diverse presentations, we’re saying goodbye to our monthly *First Friday evenings. But we’re going out with a bang!

Our final First Friday speaker – on Friday 7 November 2014 – is someone who has probably touched the lives of all of us here in Brighton and Hove in some way - John Varah of arts organisation Same Sky.

A central part of our city’s vibrant community arts scene, Same Sky makes big things happen – in Brighton and beyond. Behind the lights, costumes and carnival of its bold events, Same Sky works its magic, bringing together schools, local authorities, companies and individuals to create gatherings like Brighton’s wonderful annual Children’s Parade and the winter solstice tradition of Burning the Clocks.

John Varah is artistic director at Same Sky. At First Friday, he’ll be telling us how it all happens – explaining how Same Sky manages to create so much joy, how all this is achieved through partnership, and telling us more about Same Sky’s plans and dreams.

So come along. Sign up free via Eventbrite, so we know to expect you.

Directions: we’re upstairs at 39-42 East Street, Brighton. Come to our front door in Market Street, next to the Market Inn pub, right by the East Street taxi rank. If you need to use our more accessible entrance, please let us know, and we’ll help you find it.

*First Friday is all about brain food. On the first Friday of every month we ask a speaker to join us for the NM team meeting. We drink beer, we eat crisps and we invite in new ideas, new people and new possibilities.

    I’ll miss this one but I wanted to let you know that I had been to a few of your events in the past and found them both inspiring and fun. Could you give a little detail on how you came about the decision to end them? Just to please a nosy parker!
