The Sea Beneath by MSL Projects in Hastings

The Sea Beneath

An ambitious environmental art, science and heritage project that will map the hidden water courses – and other invisible, unseen and forgotten features – beneath the streets of Hastings. We will be using our imagination and instinct, and modern science methods and data, to explore the sea beneath our feet.
Funded by Arts Council England and Trinity Triangle Heritage Action Zone.

MSL Creative Caucuses

Semaphore

Hastings signals to Earth as it emerges from Lockdown! An atmospheric and exciting blend of sound, light, fire and performance, Semaphore took place on Hastings seafront at dusk on 17 May. We were also able to exchange coded messages from Hastings, East Sussex, with some of the 27 other places on Earth called Hastings.

MSL Creative Caucuses

MSL Creative Caucuses

We hold virtual creative caucuses around particular topics and invite people to make contributions, or to simply listen in and ask questions. It’s a great way of making people part of the creative conversation!
