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.

Exiles’ proud journey home

Sometimes an outsider’s eye is needed to point up things that we see every day and take somewhat for granted. Hastings and St Leonards, as we know, has always seen an influx of people making their way from elsewhere to the south coast and embedding themselves in the community. But it is not only British people. Lauris Morgan-Griffiths spoke to photographer Tom Hunter about his taxi driver project A Journey Home which opens on 9 February at Hastings Museum and Art Gallery.

Fold is a new exhibition by visual artist, Sharon Haward, who has thirty years experience of developing a multi-disciplinary practice hinging on the exploration of site and sense of place.
