Makina Books at ‘The Daily Winds Tourist Information Centre’

October 2020–December 2020

In 2020 Makina Books were invited by artist Flo Brooks and Polly Wright, Programme Producer of Brighton CCA to curate a selection of books on ruralism to be displayed within The Daily Winds Tourist Information Centre. The Centre, based in the North Gallery of Brighton CCA is part of the exhibition, Flo Brooks: Angletwich


Over the summer, Brooks invited a group to share thoughts and experiences of the rural, through Daily Winds, a bi monthly community newsletter. These conversations and contributions have come together within a fictionalized tourist office presenting artworks and ephemera, distributing information, and hosting socially distanced events.

The space and public programme offer visitors the opportunity to both explore their own perception of the rural and the locality of Brighton, as well as encounter alternative understandings of rural life via talks, workshops, texts, films and performance.
