Hi, my name is Jade, and Black Brighton was created by myself; it stemmed from me making friends of colour due to the lack of them in my life. This then turned into a photography project that brought people from the community together, creating a sense of family and solidarity we all needed but didn’t know. Now with a growing community in a predominately white city, I have found myself doing more and more for people like myself, always trying to introduce new ways to create, communicate, and more opportunities in our artistic fields in this creative city.
Black Brighton Market is a place where Black and People of colour have the opportunity to sell their art, goods, services and perform to the general public without having to pay fees. Creating equal opportunities and better profits within the Black community. Black Brighton Market will be held every month.
