40 Duke Street
A special daytime event based on Fabrica’s regular Conversation Piece – relaxed heritage-focussed discussion group, led by Lorenza Ippolito, where topics for conversation focus on local history and debate.
The Revolutionary Potential of Older People, planned during Fabrica’s winter closing period, will be an opportunity to welcome Fabrica’s older audiences to the venue for a different type of event. People of all ages will be able to share their ideas around keeping alive the radical and progressive thought that enabled past generations to push for the creation of a free national health service, a minimum wage and general human rights.
Lorenza will be working with local members of The Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF) as well as Brighton & Hove Pensioners Association to look at how older generations can be a driving force for social change.
This event will showcase a plethora of activities older people in Brighton are involved in from local campaigns including Save the NHS, Brighton & Hove Palestinian Solidarity Campaign and the Cuba Solidarity Campaign to creating a knitted version of Picasso’s Guernica.
Come and celebrate a lively energy brought forward by decades of experience and a renewed freedom from the constrained of paid work.
