“Hastings Voluntary Action is a charity that has been supporting the residents of Hastings Borough for over 30 years.  To celebrate this and to highlight the amazing efforts of our local community, we want to create a permanent ‘photo-mosaic’ artwork that will be sited in Hastings and involve as many of our local volunteers and active community as possible.

“The photo-mosaic, created by internationally renowned ‘The Peoples Picture’, will be made up of thousands of individual photos each one with a story associated with it.  As momentum gathers, we want people who volunteer and help out in our various local communities to add their photo to the online gallery which will ultimately be used in the public artwork.

“We want individuals to recognise the practical support they offer others and their local community. By uploading their image with a short commentary, they will be a permanent part of a lively illustration of contemporary Hastings.
