SEAS (Socially Engaged Art Salon) is an award winning artists’ led organization that promotes socially engaged art practices and artists from underrepresented sectors and works with marginalized communities through exhibitions, workshops, and cultural events. It also offers an artists’ support programme and residencies.
SEAS’ programme takes place at Black and Minorities Ethnic Community Partnership (BMECP) Centre, The Ledward Centre (TLC) the up-and-coming Brighton’s LTBTQAI+ centre, and at the Jubilee Library. SEAS is the South East hub of the Social Art Network (SAN), and we often collaborate with invited curators, art institutes, charities and community organisations.
Founded by Dr Gil Mualem-Doron in 2016 and supported by Art Council England and Brighton&Hove City Council, SEAS is a beacon for socially and politically engaged art in Brighton and south-East England.
SEAS is the South-East hub for the Social Art Network (UK), and it has collaborated with organisations such as Platforma Arts+Refugees, Sanctuary on Sea, Brighton Museum, Brighton Pride, Brighton Photo Fringe, Photoworks, Blast Theory, Esmée Fairbairn, and the Coram Foundation. Since 2018, SEAS has been supported by the Art Council England and Brighton & Hove Council.
