Lewes Catalyst Club Jan 9th
In December we learned about drunken Edwardians of Lewes from Mathew Homewood, the mysteries of the ‘colour’ white from Alexandra Loske and the short but brilliant life of Aubrey Beardsley from Alexia Lazou.
We return in 2019 with award-winning speaker Steve Bustin, Mark Dishman and Kate Alderton. It’s going to be another corker.
Brighton Catalyst Club Jan 10th
The first Catalyst Club of the year promises to be a belter with three brilliant speakers: Becky Edmunds, associate artist with Blast Theory; John May, former editor of IT, contributor to Oz Magazine and the NME’s ‘Dick Tracy’; plus West End theatre director, Carole Todd. We’re in for an evening of entertaining talks on entertaining.
PLEASE NOTE: after 14 years I’ve decided to start the Catalyst Club half an hour earlier as I think many of you would appreciate an earlier finish. DOORS 7.30PM, first talk at 8pm. Please spread the word.

In conjunction with Leaping Hare Press, this Catalyst Club special offers three inspiring talks from authors, artists and critical thinkers on the themes of gender, creativity and positive change.
Josie Jeffrey: Making Positive Changes
Author, activist, change-maker and mama JJ share her insights into how anyone can all make positive social change each and every day by being creative, brave, and thinking out of any box! From food shed to community gardening and seedbombing, find out how it’s all about following your heart.
Philippa Stanton: conscious creativity
Philippa is a professional artist and photographer with synaesthesia, whose work has attracted over 400k followers on Instagram. She will share thoughts on synaesthesia, colour, wabi sabi and how to confidently build a creative foundation through process, experimentation and time. Philippa will open up a simple sensory exploration, prompting the visual and visceral experiences we can find right in front of us and which sit alongside memory and abstract thinking.
Casper Walsh: From Shame to Grace – Toxic Masculinity, Crisis and Cure
How do we transform toxic masculinity into a healthy one? The Mindful Man – Words from the Earth by author, journalist and filmmaker Caspar Walsh offers one possible solution to the crisis of male identity in the 21st Century. Walsh will discuss how to heal the masculine/feminine wound and start a conversation that will change the way we are in the world.
