Hastings Creative Spring

18/02/2019, 10:00 am - 22/02/2019, 5:00 pm

Are you aged 14 to 18, into digital media, and looking for something interesting to do in the February Half Term?

Hastings’ Creative Spring is a great chance to learn about some of the things that you can do with creative media.

It’s a five-day programme taking place between 18-22 February.

Hastings’ Creative Spring 2019 will give you a taste of ways to go with work, study or hobbies. It’s all about personal development, new opportunities in the fast-growing creative industries, and having fun.

Try digging out fascinating stories and data about our town decades ago in Unpacking the Past or write about it in Ghosthunting. Why not create animated sequences to make a visual story in Stop Frame Animation or build an audio soundscape to accompany visuals in Audio Camp? Get in the picture by learning about digital cameras or DSLRs in Documentary Photography or by turning your visuals and stories into an experience on mobile phones in Coding Academy.
Workshop sessions will take place in Rock House on Cambridge Road and Hastings Library on Claremont in the America Ground, Hastings Town Centre. See the full addresses on the website.

Some sessions will run for a half-day (either 10am to 1pm or 2pm to 5pm). Others will be for a full-day (10am to 3pm) and some over two days (10am to 3pm on both days). One workshop, Documentary Photography, will take place over several days. Participants on this session will be documenting the work on other sessions so look at this carefully.

If you are 16+ we also have a special opportunity for an aspiring professional photographer. Look on website for “Apprentice Wanted”.

You can book for multiple sessions but as numbers are limited, we may have to prioritise between applications. If you want to do one of the two-day sessions, then you will have to commit to do the two days.

On full-day sessions you will need to bring a packed lunch. If there is a clash between your choices, give us your preferences.

There will be a small charge of £3 for each half-day session, £5 for a full-day session or £8 for a two-day session to be paid in advance. Documentary Photography will be charged as a two-day session.
