“Try guitar, keyboard, drums or vocals and join our new band,” a spokesperson said. “Together we’ll learn some classic songs and maybe try writing some new ones, inspired by the amazing exhibits and collections at Hastings Museum & Art Gallery. Our friendly tutors can help you develop some new skills, but if you’re playing already have an instrument, please bring it with you.
Relaxed opening, August 8, free, from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., without appointment, for all ages.
“Our relaxed openings are for neurodiverse children and families, people with autism or with additional needs who may find it easier to enjoy the exhibit in a quieter environment. During the relaxed opening, our lights will be on full and all sounds and videos will be turned off so the environment is less overwhelming for you.
Jason and his Argonauts, until September 4, during opening hours, without appointment, for all ages.
“Jason and his Argonauts is a major new exhibition of fun, vibrant and thought-provoking digital artwork by Jason Wilsher-Mills. Drawing inspiration from his ancient Greek namesake, Jason has worked with disabled communities across the UK, exploring themes of disability. The exhibit tells stories of these communities, blending them with Jason’s own biography, creating new stories and myths. At the center of this exhibit is an ornately decorated inflatable Argonaut sculpture.
