Students of Art and Design from Bexhill 6th Form College and Sussex Coast College Hastings will be working with Bexhill Museum, Hastings Museum and Art Gallery and the De La Warr Pavilion, exploring the heritage of migration in the area through archived material and artefacts which date back to 80AD. The students will curate three innovative exhibitions displays at each cultural venue, exhibiting the heritage uncovered by the project alongside contemporary artworks responding to migration.
