This pop up digital and lenticular animation installation is a room with a view, depicting East Brighton from the racecourse to the seafront. The postcards installation has been inspired by ex-resident Dennis Constable who vividly recalls his happy childhood in 1940s/50s Whitehawk in tandem with reflections and playground songs by the children of Whitehawk Academy, his first school. The room is inspired by Whitehawk historian, author and photographer Fred Netley, East Brighton Bygones, and by The Hill - Whitehawk (author Dave Bangs). The installation/workshop is supported by Whitehawk Library and by ASDA Brighton Marina who are hosting events, by East Brighton Bygones at Valley Social Centre, and with workshop materials provided by Hive Associates, Brewers Paints, and Clarkes Stationers Brighton .
