PhotoHastings aims to inspire an appreciation of contemporary photographic art through an annual festival programme, regular talks, exhibitions, workshops and mentoring

Starting with a group of enthusiastic and knowledgeable photographers in 2009, the PhotoHastings season, now takes place from October each year. Our diverse photo festival, has included partnerships with the Photography and the Archive Research Centre at University of the Arts London, (PARC), the Electric Cinema Hastings, Fairlight Arts Trust, the Pier Trust and Brighton Photo Fringe. Distinguished guest photographers have included Simon Roberts, Martin Parr, Nigel Shafran and Nigel Green.
