Promenade project

The Coastal Currents arts festival is fast approaching, and one of the first visible signs is the Promenade project.

Eight recognised artists with a connection to the region were invited to donate an image to be made into double-crown sized promenade posters which have been displayed along the seafront in Hastings and St Leonards. The images have also been reproduced and distributed in local shops/ cafes/ galleries etc 10,000 free collectible postcards.

The artists are:

Jake & Dinos Chapman, Maggi Hambling, Billy Childish, Ben Eine, Andrew Kotting & Iain Sinclair, Martin O'Neill, Debi Angel & local printmakers Aardvark.

This was a collaboration between Creative Coast & zeroh (pictured above). Zeroh also helped on the festival branding this year, and designed the brochure front cover.
