Identity: a twin town collaboration

You are invited to the launch of ‘Identity’, a collaboration between artists from Hastings and Dordrecht, twin towns since 1982. The collaboration is in response to the City of Dordrecht’s six-month event to mark the 400th anniversary of the Synod of Dort, an international religious assembly held in Dordrecht, which led to the first translation of the Bible into Dutch. Christine Gist writes.

Project Art Works breaks through

The innovative Project Art Works is UK’s leading artist led organisation that works with people with profound intellectual impairment and complex needs. It was started 21 years ago. In Hastings. Since then it has inspired similar schemes across the country – with international links. Isn’t Hastings amazing? It is staggering what Hastings achieves with limited resources and massive enthusiasm and  ambition. HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths applauds Project Art Works’ hard work.
