Hastings Voluntary Action (HVA) has been supporting the residents of Hastings Borough for over 30 years. To celebrate this and to highlight the amazing efforts of the local community, they are creating a permanent Hastings ‘photo-mosaic’ artwork to involve as many local volunteers and active members of the community as possible.
The photo-mosaic, designed by internationally renowned The People’s Picture, will be made up of thousands of individual photos, each one associated with a story. As momentum gathers, the photos of people who volunteer and help out in the various local communities will be added to the online gallery as the basis of the public artwork.
The idea is to recognise the practical support volunteers offer to others and their local community. By uploading their image with a short commentary, they will be a permanent part of a lively illustration of contemporary Hastings.
By donating today you will be supporting the production of an outstanding piece of public art for Hastings and showing your support for the community.
