Guided by multi-disciplinary artist Sophie Wright, young people aged 16 to 24 have been meeting each week to mind map creative ideas, meditate and holistically explore wellbeing and safe spaces. Through this process, three meditation pods have been created and placed in East Sussex libraries where visitors can enjoy a reflective moment.
See the pods at Eastbourne Library, Seaford Library and Hastings Library.
Eastbourne Library, Grove Rd, Eastbourne BN21 4TL
Seaford Library, 15-17 Sutton Park Rd, Seaford BN25 1QX
Hastings Library, Brassey Institute, 13 Claremont, Hastings TN34 1HE
Sophie Wright is a multi-disciplinary artist specialising in drawing, sculpture and community workshops. She is also an experienced meditation practitioner working 1-to-1 or in groups up to 40 participants. Wright is weaving these two practices into the Meditation Pods project as part of Eastbourne ALIVE, celebrating Turner Prize 2023 coming to Eastbourne.
