Hastings’ Creative Spring 2019 was a great chance for 14 to 18 year olds to learn about some of the things that can be done with creative media. It was a five-day programme which took place place from 18 to 22 February.
Hastings’ Creative Spring gave the participants a taste of ways to go with work, study or hobbies. It was all about personal development, new opportunities in the fast-growing creative industries, and having fun.
Fascinating stories and data were discovered about our town decades ago in Unpacking the Past and were written about in Ghosthunting. Animated sequences were created to make a visual story in Stop Frame Animation. Audio soundscapes were built to accompany visuals in Audio Camp. Documentary Photography included learning about digital cameras (DSLRs). Visuals and stories were turned into an experience on mobile phones in Coding History.
Hastings’ Creative Spring was developed by MSL Discover. It was supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England and delivered in association with Rock House, Hastings Library/East Sussex County Council, Love Hastings, the Big Local and Hastings International Piano Concerto Competition.
