Last year I spent an incredible couple of weekends working at Coastal Currents, a visual arts festival in St Leonards and Hastings and unbelievably it’s back already, running from 29th August – 14th September!
This is the second year Creative Coast and Home Live Art have teamed up to produce Coastal Currents, bringing together local open studios, exhibitions and interactive live art. I really enjoyed my time at Coastal Currents last year (you can read about 2013 events Walking Stories, Worktable, Bodies in Urban Spaces and Boogaloo Stu if you like!). This year looks like it will have just as moving and spectacular artwork, such as Meltdown, Points of View and Kate McGwire. Once I’ve shifted my summer holiday cold (more about that in my next post..) I’ll be going down to see some weekend events.
All the artwork is free and there’s also some great ways to get involved over next weekend such as a bike tour of the open studios. And if you need any more persuading the Blue Dophin Fish Bar in Hastings does amazing fish and chips!
