Brighton Digital Festival: Brighton Recall

Brighton is a city of stories and writers from Graham Greene and Peter James to Julie Burchill and Nick Cave have used it to tell their stories, now it’s your chance to do the same.

As part of Brighton Digital Festival, which runs from 1-28 September 2014, New Writing South will be mapping your stories of Brighton.

Brighton Recall invites you to share your memories and stories of Brighton on a map of the city. Whether it was a great night out, the loss of love, the birth of your child or just a memorable day on the beach, we want them all.

There will be a showcase of selected stories on Tuesday 23 September.

Check out the map below or click here to see the stories we have already uploaded, and click the ‘Collections’ tab to see all the stories we’ve found posted by other people.

To add your story you can:

  • Sign up to the Historypin website or download the app then ‘pin’ your story by uploading a memory with a picture, video or audio. Please remember to tag your story Brighton Recall so we can find it.
  • Come along to one of our drop in session (Tuesday 2, 9 & 16 September, 6.30pm – 8.30pm) at the Writers’ Place in 9, Jew street, Brighton. We will be sharing memories and stories in a relaxed and informal setting while uploading them to our digital collection. Please remember to bring any pictures, video or audio that goes with your story.
  • Email with your name, story, picture, date and location where the story is based, then we will add it to the collection.
