The Pride Cultural Development Fund is a new initiative to create new spaces for different stories to be told in different ways from our rapidly changing community.Brighton & Hove Pride in collaboration with urbanflo creative and Socially Engaged Art Salon (SEAS) proudly present one of the biggest and most diverse exhibitions featuring LGBTQ+ narratives as part of the new engagement initiative, Pride Cultural Development Programme.

Located in 2 city centre venues, the stunning ‘Colour My World’ exhibition includes creative contributions from over 60 artists, filmmakers and activists from the UK, Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia and the Americas. Through this array of cultural lenses, the exhibition reveals a range of personal and sometimes raw, intimate and challenging explorations of social and political struggles that some LGBTQ+ communities are still facing; including experiences of isolation and difference, persecution and resistance, family and community.
