Lab for the Recently Possible: now in Brighton’s North Laine

In the Lab

The Lab for the Recently Possible is open again, in a beautiful, light and leafy home in Brighton’s North Laine, and we have a whole set of new events starting up. Come along, or tell a friend.

In our first four workshops, you can learn to code (in a day), learn JavaScript (from scratch), learn how to build data visualisations — and learn how to be more creative with money.

This new incarnation of The Lab is still taking shape. So please get involved.

We want to host workshops that teach the most potent, useful cutting-edge technologies in a friendly, clear and simple way. And we want to bring experimental art, social movements and personal development under one roof. And get people involved and talking to each other, connecting and collaborating.

So, if you’re interested and want to stay in touch, sign up for our mailing list or follow @L4RP on Twitter. And if you want to put on a workshop – or anything else – get in touch.

In the Lab


Thurs 16th May, 6-10pm ish. Add yourself on Lanyrd

Come and welcome the Lab for the Recently Possible to its new location at the heart of Brighton. It’s a pretty informal affair. Children welcome. Bring along something to sup, and a game if you fancy. We’ll provide cake. Rumour has it there may be a supersized canvas and paints, for your creative pleasure.
