Capturing the tides of local life

The local Coastal Currents Arts Festival is at the heart of the Hastings & St Leonards calendar. It's a fantastic three weeks celebrating the incredible creativity of our town's renowned artistic community, attracting thousands of visitors and tourists. This year, for the first time, King's Church Hastings will be playing its part – and that's where you come in!

During Coastal Currents, we will be running an exhibition in Coffee Box, open to everyone. So whether you're a photographer, painter, illustrator or fine artist – beginner or advanced – we'd love to showcase some of your work.


We've chosen the theme Tides for our exhibition, which will capture the ebb and flow of life in Hastings & 1066 Country. Tides will be a collaborative exhibition of photographic and creative works from artists living in the area, touching on the seasons, the memories, the hopes and the realities of life in our town. This is a brilliant opportunity for us as a church to use our creative gifts to participate in this festival that is such a key part of our town. We love being part of such an artistic community and are excited to step out in this area and get involved.

The brief is simple: produce a single photo or a collection of portraits or scenic photographs, representing your view of the tides of life in Hastings & 1066 Country. For each image or for your collection as a whole, please provide a brief story, memory or hope, explaining your chosen theme. Please bear in mind that we will print some photos at A3 for the exhibition, so please use the highest resolution settings on your camera and submit uncompressed versions of your photos (RAW if possible). Hand your work in on a CD or memory stick, or email jothurston@kingshastings.org by Friday 31 July.

If your work is selected, it will be displayed in Coffee Box throughout Coastal Currents, including at our launch event on Saturday 5 September (more info coming soon).

We'd love to see your work and showcase some of the outstanding talent we have at King's Church and from the local community. Other Coastal Current exhibitions will be taking place across Hastings' public spaces between 28 August and 13 September, too, promising a colourful exhibition of creative arts, so note the dates and don't miss this great event in our town.
