Home Live Art Vision
Our vision is to be the Home for Live Art in Hastings
We use the term Live Art as a way to describe a performance that does not fit neatly into any category.
Live Art is about creating a space for audiences and artists to come together and share a meaningful experience with each other.
It can be surprising, provocative and sometimes a little bit challenging, it can also be gentle, reflective and inspiring – often it can be all of these things at the same time.
Hastings is a creative town with an appetite for the bold and brave.
The perfect Home for Live Art.
Our main goals are:
– To develop new sites and audiences for live art and experimental performance in Hastings, the South East and beyond.
– To create the ideal conditions for local, national and international artists to develop and present their work.
– To ensure multiple voices are heard including those that are often marginalised.
