The Speakers

Alex Brattell

Alex Brattell is a commercial and editorial photographer. His personal darkroom prints exploring mind and perception, ‘an ongoing psychological reportage’, form a continuous thread through his career and have been widely exhibited. Brattell started photographing in 1981 for the Liverpool music & arts fanzine Breakout and now works as a photographer for artists, performers, galleries and cultural institutions. He has been a visiting lecturer at British art colleges since 1996 and has photographed the Coastal Currents Arts Festival since 2011.

Sally Greig

For the last 25 years I have worked in the Arts and in Education. I trained as an actor at Rose Bruford and I was the Artistic Director for 2 leading fringe theatres in South London. After moving to Hastings in 2004 with my husband and 3 sons I have worked at a senior level in Education, created a holistic wellbeing centre in a local secondary school and co created The Eggtooth Project. I am a connector and I thrive on linking people and places to places and people and most importantly I love connecting people with people. I have done this all my adult life.

Greig Burgoyne

Artist, Curator, Lecturer & Researcher RCA who draws a lot, doesn’t like Elgar, but is very impressed by chipboard & empty car parks.

Burgoyne was born in Glasgow Scotland, studied at HAK Vienna & MA painting Royal college of Art London.
He engages in a broad based site- specific drawing practice that embraces film, live performance and wall drawing; Lectures in fine art & critical theory in France, Belgium, Canada & Russia; Curates exhibitions & Presents at Conference.
Burgoyne unites office materials ranging from post-it notes to highlighter pens and photocopy paper alongside process led, rule based repetition, endurance, accumulation and duration.

Taking anomalies of the space, he seeks to test or expand alternative body/site relations with regard to space and thinking.
The results are immersive, be they absurd or beguiling taking the form of site-specific wall drawings, films, performances and installations.

Burgoyne proposes new dialogues and frameworks that seek to generate a condition of becoming, translation and flux instead of stasis; a site of experience rather than merely location.

Emily Peasgood

Emily Peasgood is an award-winning composer and artist. From interactive sound works for galleries and public spaces to intimate installations and large-scale community projects, her work uses intricate sound and technology design to focus on creating a connection between people and locations that have become forgotten and unvalued, often rooted in political realities. Peasgood’s work is described as magical (The Times), evocative (The Telegraph), and memorable (A-N). Recent works include: The Illusion of Conscious Thought (Coastal Currents, 2018), Requiem for Crossbones (Merge Festival, 2018), Halfway to Heaven (Folkestone Triennial 2017), and BASCA nominated BIRDS and other Stories (2017).
