Born from a simple conversation between Paul & Tristan over some drinks on Albert Road, the idea for Strong Island came from our passion about where we live and the fact that we would often miss certain events, gigs, exhibitions etc and had no real source to find out about them in one place…
We launched 8 days later on the 27th September 2008 with some of our own photos and videos alongside scans of flyers we picked up and articles we dug out about the city. Things have changed a lot over the years with a great team of writers joining us along the way but our passion for our creative city continues to grow. We’ve also driven our own creative projects & exhibitions too, striving to help make positive change and really push this creative city on to a national stage.
Proudly independent, our ethos is to quite simply be the best resource to promote, showcase and inform people about Portsmouth and Southsea’s arts & cultural scene. Be it past, present or future we’ll do our best to keep you up to date with photos, videos, interviews and features about the city and it’s people.
Welcome to Strong Island.
