@kidsinmuseums Takeover Day may be a bit different this year and we cannot wait to welcome all our young visitors back in the Gallery when we reopen.
Hastings Contemporary offers young people the opportunity to make the gallery their creative home in Hastings. We believe that everybody is an artist.
In October 2018, the gallery launched its first major young people’s programme, ‘Young Artists’ and our school workshops focus on one art-based skill which is explored through the lens of one of our popular learning themes.
Did you know that up to four children can visit the gallery for free with every adult ticket purchased?

This #ThrowbackThursday we are looking back at Keith Tyson: Turn Back Now exhibiton in January - June 2017.
This exhibition of Studio Wall Drawings by 2002 Turner Prize Winner, @keithtyson23 , covered the entire ground floor of the gallery.
The Studio Wall Drawings mapped Tyson’s experience of daily existence, as a space to consider universal questions, and to record deeply personal moments, charting, in Tyson’s words, ‘a kind of emotional headline of the day.’
Tyson began making Studio Wall Drawings in 1997 as a way to explore ideas in a very limited studio space. They existed, in his words, ‘somewhere in-between a sketchbook, a journal, a poem and a painting’. Twenty years later they were still a fundamental part of his artistic practice.
