The Brighton Paradox

The Brighton Paradox

The Brighton Paradox is a unique ten-part audio series, investigating the UK city of Brighton & Hove’s creative and economic potential in uncertain times.

This project is about celebrating and amplifying Brighton’s greatest assets and ideas. It is about better understanding some of the challenges, the risks and the change already happening.

This podcast is for anyone who cares about Brighton & Hove. It is for people passionate about Brighton's business, creative, education and public service, and communities, as well as people outside the city who are curious about the UK’s quirky laboratory on the south coast.
