I Get Up

23 May 201926 May 2019

I GET UP is a video and performance exhibition involving unhoused clients at First Base Day Centre, RAPT Theatre, Dr Roberta Piazza (Sussex University) and RBD Design.

Over three months, the group shared stories, food and thoughts about the world in order to create a series of films which are fragmentary, honest and revealing.

This exhibition includes videos, writing and photography created during the process and responds to the participants’ experience of living in Brighton and Hove.



RAPT (Research, Artistry, Participation, Theatre) was set up by Emma Higham and Dr Lisa Peck to create socially engaged, high quality performance projects, facilitating the coming together of artists, researchers and communities. RAPT makes work which challenges audiences to see the extraordinary in the everyday and searches for new models; bringing people together in unique collaborations.



First Base offers a range of services to support people who are sleeping rough or insecurely housed in the city, including food, showers, clean and dry clothes, and support to get off the streets. It also provides opportunities for work experience and learning.

In partnership with other agencies, a range of services are provided including dentistry, podiatry, nursing interventions, mental health advice and support, and accommodation and relocation services.
