Make the most of this beautiful weather and explor Make the most of this beautiful weather and explore our town with the world's first-ever art GeoTour with Hastings Contemporary and @cultureshiftcio

Using geocaching, the GPS-enabled digital treasure hunt technology, communities from each of the seven #EnglandsCreativeCoast locations were invited to share their personal stories of what it’s like to live in that particular coastal place, respond to the new artwork in their town and give visitors a new way to interact with the landscape.

In Hastings, there are 6 geocaches stretching from one end of the borough to the other, each located fairly close to the coast.

Made by 6 different groups, they all take on different shapes and forms dictated by their different hiding places and the stories each group wants to tell about themselves and the location
of their cache.

These include volunteers at Hastings Country Park working with Mary Hooper @ma.hooper1,  @buddyproject_refugeeswelcome led by two group members, Leigh Malaihollo and Fatima Esayli, a digital content creator and a young Sudanese architect, children at Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School working with @janeymoffatt,
@hastingsyouthcouncil working with Beccy McCray @beccy_mccraycray , rough sleepers working with Claire Shoosmith @clshoos and associates at @eastbournestudiopottery and @friendsofcombevalleyarttrail led by 2 artist members @elise_bex and @juliewillard_glass_artist

The caches reflect personal impressions of living by the sea, and explorations of Hastings’ coastal stories and history.

To participate download the GeoCaching app via the App store, GeoTour code: GT4A5

The caches stretch from Hastings Country Park in the East to Combe Valley in the West, passing very close to Hastings Contemporary and Angelis Angelikadis’ sculpture. 

Don't forget to share your images using #HastingsGeo tag.
