Street Story

Activity: External funding peer-review


An augmented reality experience that links Brighton & Hove’s history with the transatlantic slave trade is being launched at Jubilee Library 20-25 November, 2023.

Street Story by Artist and Developer Judith is a free, site-specific augmented reality touring experience for the city of Brighton & Hove that uses smartphone technology to overlay information around the city with digital artefacts, which help to reveal the hidden history about the city’s involvement in the transatlantic slave trade.

Judith says: “By walking, and experiencing this difficult history amongst the physical buildings of the city’s enslavers, my hope is that audiences will contemplate our legacy by walking with the past directly overlaid onto parts of our local neighbourhoods.

This work is designed not just to highlight locations in the city, but most importantly to start to make connections with the plantations and people which had a significant financial influence on this city. My goal for this highly experimental work is to encourage reflection, discussion, dialogue and further research within Brighton & Hove’s diverse communities relating to how we remember and commemorate the people of this legacy who, generationally, helped to shape this city”.
