BREAKING THE SILENCE, an HLF funded Inroads project about the Spanish Flu Pandemic and Brighton in 1918/19 at the end of World War One

"There was always a silence…"
(quote from oral history interviewee, 2019)

An Inroads community arts project exploring the history of the Spanish Flu, in partnership with Brighton General Hospital and the University of Brighton, our performances and exhibition were suddenly interrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic.

We are currently re-visioning the project, working on a research project in partnership with the University, a website for all the materials gathered, and a future performance that will explore the theme of silence, then and now..

Read about the partnership with Brighton University on their blog here.
