Brainchild is a growing DIY network of creative people. Our highlight of the year is Brainchild Festival, a three-day event that takes place in East Sussex in July. We also produce cross-art events throughout the year. We are always sharing ways for people to get involved, from performing at the main Festival, to volunteering, designing art installations, taking part in our HATCH nights at Platform Southwark, and many more opportunities across the year.
