Join us for a special edition of our free Open Sessions event series - a timely exploration of how Gen Z are challenging traditional working cultures against a background of climate change and the cost of living crisis.

This Open Session, which coincides with the launch of our fundraising campaign for Lighthouse Young Creatives, will feature a diverse panel of speakers including:

  • Adam Joolia - CEO of AudioActive, a music and social change charity

  • Lara Antoine - Lighthouse Young Creatives alum, video editor & writer

  • Atif Choudhury - Co-Founder & CEO of Diversity & Inclusion

  • Hazel Davis - Lighthouse Young Creatives alum, poet & writer

  • Dom Bailey - Co-Founder & Strategic Director of design agency Baxter & Bailey

The evening will include short performances by two LYC alumni, talented spoken word artist Hazel Davis, and activist, rapper and singer-songwriter Boudicca.

Attendees will also be able to see some of the excellent work produced by our very talented Lighthouse Young Creatives participants, including music videos, photography, moving image works and zines.

Lighthouse is a fully wheelchair accessible venue. This event will be held in the ground floor, level access, reception space and the Digital Lounge downstairs, accessible via a lift. We can accommodate a maximum of two wheelchairs in the Digital Lounge at one time. For further information email info@lighthouse.org.uk or call 01273 647197.


Lighthouse Open Sessions are an opportunity to make new connections, meet like-minded people, hear from creative people about their career-defining moments and gain advice for getting started in the creative and digital sector.

Lighthouse Young Creatives is a personal and professional development scheme for young people in Brighton & Hove aged 16-25 who aspire to work in the creative industries but face exclusion through lack of access and barriers to participation.

First launched in 2018, the scheme equips participants with the skills, confidence and connections they need to enhance their employability, entrepreneurship and future career prospects through a six-month programme of production skills training, business development support, mentoring, showcasing and networking.

This event is funded by Sussex Community Foundation.
