A free one-night multimedia festival brought to Brighton Photo Biennial by Night Contact

For one night only, public indoor and outdoor spaces across central Brighton will be transformed with projections and screenings of an inspiring range of still and moving images.

The featured works explore ideas of collaboration, authorship and influence in relation to the photographic image and the screen.

Street Diner, the team behind Brighton’s famous weekly street-food market, will cater for hungry visitors with a  range of food stalls in Circus Street Market, and selected Brighton Photo Biennial exhibitions will open late for the evening.
