FIELD is a temporary project working with innovative start-ups and exciting new businesses that design and make physical products. We have partly renovated a derelict building on the Preston Barracks site on Lewes Road to create rent-free desk, studio and workshop space to help grow their business. The purpose of the FIELD project is to inform a clear vision of what Brighton & Hove’s diverse entrepreneurial community needs from a potential permanent facility, which is a major part of the proposed redevelopment of Momentum.
Overall FIELD has two key aims, which are:
— To empower entrepreneurial makers, inventors, engineers and product designers with the use of a diverse workspace
— To unite like-minded people, organisations and businesses to create a community that thrives on the free exchange of ideas between creative innovators and inventors
