Working with schools, artists and arts organisations to ensure the best cultural opportunities for our young people
The Hastings and Rother Arts Education Network seeks to help redress the balance of diminishing cultural resources in schools.
Established in 2013 the network brings together schools, cultural organisations and artists in meaningful, lasting relationships.
Working with partners in Hastings and Rother in East Sussex, the focus is on using local resources for local schools, creating sustainable projects that embed culture into the everyday lives of our young people.
We offer regular networking meetings for teachers and practitioners, information exchange including newsletters, opportunities for cultural engagement and bespoke cultural projects; supporting teachers in the classroom, artists working in schools and organisations offering cultural outreach.
For 2019, Dens and Signals have teamed up with Hastings Museum and Art Gallery to deliver a free, 'end of summer term' activity day for Year 6, called Transformations. We're really excited about it, and we're offering it to schools who want be part of Animals! First for more information click here
