Light+ Who’s doing the washing up? 5: Lighthouse Maintenance Tools

September 5, 2019

Lighthouse maintenance tools: Emma Wickham and Eva Rowson

Curator Eva Rowson concludes the podcast series in conversation with Lighthouse Head of Operations, Emma Wickham. They share their favourite ‘Lighthouse maintenance tools’ to reflect on how the building works, what keeps it going – and who’s doing the washing up.

Emma Wickham is Head of Operations and joined Lighthouse as Administrator in 2005. Emma leads on venue and commercial development, oversees the smooth running of our office and venue, manages our operations team and oversees event management and project support for all Lighthouse activities. She is the heart and soul of the organisation and can often be found providing the warmest welcome in Brighton to our guests, visitors, audiences, colleagues and tenants at Lighthouse.

Light+ Who's doing the washing up? is a series of podcasts documenting Curator in Residence Eva Rowson’s six month programme (January – July 2019) ‘Who’s doing the washing up – where’s the sink?’ exploring the role of hospitality at Lighthouse.

Music for the podcast series is taken from a collection of new arrangements composed and recorded by artist Aliyah Hussain, made when working on her forthcoming EP (Bloxham Tapes), based on the science fiction novel Native Tongue by Suzette Haden Elgin.

Produced by Olivia Melkonian and Nats Spada of Brighton-based not-for-profit next generation broadcaster Platform B.
