21 September – 6 October 2013
[Open Studios: 21/22 and 28/29 September]
We’re delighted to announce that Creative Coast and home live art will be collaborating to manage Coastal Currents 2013.
This year the festival will have the theme of Hastings Live, with an exciting series of performances and live events, in addition to the usual mix of exhibitions, open studios and events.
Locally-based and artist-run company Creative Coast has managed Coastal Currents since 2009, successfully developing a broad-based festival that has provided a platform for dynamic and exciting visual art, film and performance. Each year the curated programme has taken a difference focus, encompassing performance, events, exhibitions and site specific works. In 2012 the team successfully expanded and in 2013 the chance to work collaboratively with HLA is welcomed both practically and creatively.
Home live art is an established and experienced company of creative producers- living on the South Coast- which has been active since 1999. From their roots presenting radical small scale, “salon” events in a South London family house to large-scale, site-specific work, they have wide expertise in commissioning complex and inter-disciplinary programmes of work, which are distinct and groundbreaking. Playing with the traditional, communal and the celebratory, home produces and curates a programme of artist led, participatory work.
HLA has been looking for the opportunity to develop its work in the South East for some time. Joining forces with the Creative Coast team is therefore both timely and exciting. The combined curatorial expertise and shared knowledge of the visual, performance and live arts sector will make for a dynamic and engaging festival which remains loyal to the visual arts community in the region as well as bringing fresh ideas for site specific performance and live work.
