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.

HRAEN has commissioned 6 new Career Insight Conversations from Culture Shift as part of our Schools Connect project.
The online conversations each include a professional introduction, Q&A session, top tips for being successful in a specific industry and a task-based creative challenge. They are designed to be an easy way for teachers to include creative careers into the curriculum.
