Pictures are Powerful

Make it Happen - help us provide Hastings with a permanent piece of public art!

Hastings Voluntary Action is a charity and it has been supporting the residents of Hastings Borough for over 30 years.  To celebrate this and to highlight the amazing efforts of our local community we want to create a permanent 'photo-mosaic' artwork that will be sited in Hastings and involve as many of our local volunteers and active community as possible.

The final image and where it will be sited have yet to be decided but these photos give an idea of how people can interact with the visual.

The photo-mosaic will be made up of thousands of individual photos each one with a story associated with it.  As momentum gathers we want people who volunteer and help out in our various local communities to add their photo to the online gallery which will ultimately be used in the public artwork.  We want individuals to recognise the practical support they offer others and their local community.  By uploading their image with a short commentary they will be a permanent part of a lively illustration of contemporary Hastings.

By donating today you will be supporting the production of an outstanding piece of public art for Hastings, and showing community support. 

What We Do 
We provide support to set up and grow organisations, charities & groups and we offer fundraising support to those groups.
We provide information relating to volunteering and free or reduced cost training on issues affecting organisations and groups.
We encourage access to Hastings Community Network – a campaigning & information network.
We have accessible meeting room hire, equipment hire & virtual office services.

The People’s Picture www.thepeoplespicture.com is a photography and design studio led by British artist Helen Marshall. Every artwork is made up of thousands of photos yet every single one tells a story. Pictures are powerful. People connect with pictures. People share their memories, dreams and celebrate through pictures.  

The Heroes of Hastings online, interactive gallery and final physical artwork will be a fantastic contemporary record of Hastings' diverse communities, with the final image helping to promote the town as a must-visit destination.
