16: Future

By Stella Cardus

16: Future

QueenSpark has periodically re-invented itself in order to face new challenges, adopt new technologies, and renew its strategies for reaching the ‘lesser-heard’ voices.

This last five years has seen such a re-invention, and QueenSpark now finds itself in the position of attracting more interest, and is involved in a greater range of projects, than ever before. Of course, like all voluntary organisations, we are not immune to the cuts in arts funding, although there is still much to be optimistic about:

On 20 October 2011 we launched an online photographic collection of historic and contemporary images of the city.

In 2012 QueenSpark Books celebrated its 40th anniversary becoming the longest standing community publisher in the UK.

We are also delighted to announce that Arts Council England have funded QueenSpark for 'Alt-Brighton' which will use the history of Brighton & Hove as a starting point for imaginative fiction, leading to the publication of a graphic novel in autumn 2013.

And the nursery is still with us!
