The Synergy Centre – Latest News
The Synergy Centre team are on the verge of finalising a deal with the owners of a large venue in Brighton about a possible interim use of the space formerly known as Hed Kandi on West Street in Brighton. The space is a 380 capacity venue which we will be developing into a mix-used venue, applying Synergy’s time-honoured strategy of harnessing the power of creative media to raise awareness of sustainable, ethical and ‘conscious’ lifestyles.
Having been neglected for some time and recently squatted, the building is in need of some repair and cleaning. In the run up to the opening, which we plan to take place in May in time for the Brighton Festival, we are going to be inviting people to get involved particularly with the clean-up process. Volunteers will be rewarded with units of our complementary currency, the ‘Synergy’ which can be redeemed on the door and bar / cafe at future events. We also looking to recruit programming, production and promotion interns – young (or not so young) people looking to gain skills and work experience in the creative and cultural industries.
Our Track Record
For more information about the historical origins of The Synergy Centre, please take a look at the web-site of The Synergy Project, the groundbreaking ‘conscious partying’ organisation that ran a series of events in London between 2003 and 2009. Profits from ‘The Project’ were invested into converting a disused warehouse in Camberwell, South London, in to a youth and community arts centre – the first ‘Synergy Centre’.
A film we made about The Synergy Centre in Camberwell, which ran between 2005 and 2009, can be seen below.
