Title; Our Dream Island

What? Week long celebration of wishful thinking by artist, Toby Melville-Brown

When? 16th-21st June

Where? It Is What It Is, 22 Gloucester Road, Brighton, BN1 4AQ.


Our Dream Island is a celebration of wishful thinking, organised by Brighton-based Illustrator, Toby Melville-Brown.

The Summer Holiday. Every year we hatch these grand plans to travel to some far-reaching island or cross-off that bucket list activity. The reality; September arrives and we’ve got nothing to show for our summer but a camping weekend in Wales and a festival at Brighton City Airport. .

In recognition of those holiday plans that never come to fruition, local creative, Toby Melville-Brown, will be illustrating the dream holiday destination, by asking the public; “What one thing would you want on your ideal holiday getaway?” The responses of such conversations will shape his largest and most ambitious artwork to date.

In addition, the event will also include a range of creative ventures including; a holiday souvenir-making workshop with Jessica Melville-Brown, sculpture workshop, mini-gallery, colouring competitions, plenty of guest creatives and almost certainly loads more.

Our Dream Island will be open to the public from 16th-21st June at It Is What It Is, Gloucester Road, Brighton, The City of Brighton and Hove BN1 4AQ.

The event has been made possible by Somewhere To. A lottery funded initiative, designed to provide young entrepreneurs and creatives with a platform for their endeavours.
