What support does Hastings Borough Council provide?
Hastings Borough Council supports arts, culture and heritage across the town in a number of ways.
We provide Hastings Museum & Art Gallery as a free cultural resource for residents and visitors.
We contract the management of the White Rock Theatre.
From 2018/19 we are providing support to the Hastings Contemporary as it becomes an independent charity with regular funding from Arts Council England.
We support and deliver the Stade Saturdays programme of free outdoor arts from June to October, commission the St Leonards Festival and support the Coastal Currents Arts Festival which became independent from the council in 2017.
Our Culture Team provides advice and guidance to artists and arts organisations, including support with funding applications. To get in touch email firstname.lastname@example.org.
