The New Immortals was funded by a Grant for the Arts from The National Lottery through Arts Council England and supported by Phoenix Brighton and the Phoenix team. New work, In Praise of Renewal, by Judith Alder, made in collaboration with Sam Sharples, Clive Whitburn and the Brighton Festival Chorus was enabled by The Artists Benevolent Fund. The New Immortals symposium was sponsored by Brighton and Sussex Medical School, and co-organised and chaired by Professor Bobbie Farsides who generously supported Judith throughout the development of the project. Professor Matteo Santin from Brighton Centre for Regenerative Medicine was instrumental in facilitating research for the project and in co-organising two Saturday Lab events for The New Immortals. Early mentoring for the project was funded by a re-View bursary from a-n The Artists Information Company. Thanks also to Alice Ryrie and volunteer med students from Brighton & Sussex Medical School and to Peter Brietbart, all of whom generously gave their time to run Saturday Lab events.
Judith was supported throughout by independent curator/consultant Sheila McGregor and by the nine artists who worked so hard to make the exhibition a success.
