ABOUT THE FESTIVAL AND EVENTS IN SUSSEX
diep~haven is a cross-channel festival of contemporary creation which takes place annually in East Sussex and Normandy, rooted in the towns of Newhaven and Dieppe. Built through a process of collaboration and exchange, diep~haven understands that cultural activity plays an essential role in constructing the way that we live together.
We host international artists in residence across our extended cross-channel territory, working in partnership with local businesses, cultural and community organisations, to support artists in the creation of new works.
During our summer festival, we present new contemporary artworks as part of a wider programme of exhibitions, events and engagement projects, structured around a central theme.
Events in NEWHAVEN
Contre Point 1: Still Life - Avenue
West Beach, Newhaven
As part of her residency project at Chateau de Bosmelet in Normandy, Freya Gabie presents ‘Avenue’, an extension of her site-specific installation in the grounds of the chateau.
The Garden (1990) by Derek Jarman
11th August, 19.00
Hillcrest Community Centre, Newhaven
Derek Jarman once compared his garden and the bleak landscape around his house in Dungeness, Britain’s only desert, to the Garden of Eden. In his film ‘The Garden’ this landscape forms the backdrop for a loose narrative that focuses on homsexuality and Christianity - connected to Jarman’s own subjective musings on these subjects - tempered by the reality of his own mortality, coming after his HIV/AIDS diagnosis.
Colour Farm Workshop
18 August, 9.00-11.00
The Shipping Container, West Beach, Newhaven

From 25 August - 2 September a shipping container is made home to a colour farm on Newhaven’s West Beach.
