BLM creative call-out from Hastings Museum and Art Gallery

Hastings Museum and Art Gallery is offering its platform to local black and ethnic minority communities to share their responses to George Floyd’s killing and the Black Lives Matter movement. Now more than ever, the arts can be a vehicle for change, a chance to heal and bring people together that may never have had the chance, writes HOT’s Vanessa Alves.

The time for silence has passed

Tonight, Thursday 4 June at 6.50pm, there will be a silent and socially distanced gathering at Warrior Square in respect of George Floyd, the black man in Minneapolis who was murdered on 25 May by a white police officer. The vigil is also to acknowledge the racism that is still implicit in the United Kingdom. HOT’s Erica Smith reports on the events in Hastings which have happened over the last week and encourages you to attend tonight to show there must be no space for racism in Hastings.
