We just submitted a short film in to the Coastal Cultural Trail film competition.
The film, which takes in the vistas over the 22 miles between the Towner Art Gallery in Eastbourne, the De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill and the Jerwood Gallery in Hastings Old Town, is 1 minute in length and shot as a collection of moving postcard images of our trail between the galleries. The competition is being run to promote the galleries and the majestic East Sussex coastline. You can view the film HERE and vote HERE, voting closes September 11th.
2016 marks the 950th anniversary of The Battle of Hastings and there are many related activities and events throughout the year in the town and surrounding area. The main focus of the festivities comes at the end of the summer, the ROOT1066 International Festival, which runs from September 3rd till October 16th. Festival Director Polly Gifford has commissioned us to create a closing event for the celebrations, for which we have chosen the recently opened Source Park, the worlds largest underground skate and BMX park, as the venue. We’re currently making plans and talking ideas through with collaborators in order to create A unique Work In Progress, the start of an ongoing wider work focusing on the Source Park. More info will be released over the next two months with hints as to what you might expect. Join us on October 16th from 6pm.
