During the Arts Festival a range of fantastic events and exhibitions take place that are curated, organised and managed by the artists themselves. In this section you will find workshops, performances, films and exhibitions in shops, on the seafront, on the streets, as well as in Hastings’ galleries, museums, arts venues and cinemas.
The ever popular Open Studios return in 2018 on the 1/2 and 8/9 September with an incredible selection of artists opening their homes and studios to create a fabulous set of trails for you to follow. We have an incredible line-up of local artists, which reflects the pool of creative talent that lives and works in 1066 Country.
