Informed by her 2015 installation, Dazzleships that Pass in the Night, at The SPACE, the artist Jaye Ho researched & delivered a workshop at The Y Centre in St Leonards on 1 September 2015.

Working with 12 young people & 3 parent leaders from the home schooled group, she led the workshop from 10.00-15.00. The group learned about the use of dazzle painting on WWI battleships to protect from enemy detection & attack. Using dazzleships camouflage for inspiration, the young people learned spray painting techniques to incorporate in temporary structures preventing them from attack.

A successful day event which was made possible by a grant from the Community Partnership Fund through Hastings Borough Council & the Grassroots Flow-Through Fund through Sussex Community Foundation.

'Thresholds' - Grace Adam's site-specific response to St Leonards' architecture opens at The SPACE on Friday 21 August & runs to 4 October 2015. The installation comprises a series of entrances that refer to selected doorways into buildings around St Leonards-on-Sea. These are buildings constructed for worship, entertainment & living. The installation explores James Burton's concept of a 'tailor-made' seaside resort, with architecture that reflected his grand vision. Our ideas of the seaside are in flux, and the project is part of Adam's on-going exploration in to the public & private spaces that we build, inhabit & negotiate.

'Thresholds' has been realised with the support of The Henry Moore Foundation

Tom Cardew
Some Images From Me To You
A photographic and moving image installation

Electro Studios Project Space - ESPS
17-19 July 2015

In this exhibition, an ensemble of four moving image works and one photographic installation containing 625 images enveloped the project space. The works explored the inseparably mundane and profane acts of living while questioning our voluntary recording and documenting everything that we do.
Cardew believes that we are addicted to consumption and have a persistent need of stimulation. We need images. Images allow us to synthetically feel what it is to live without actually having to move from our chair or crane our neck away from this light we currently gaze into.
This exhibition took place over the closing weekend of 012 a material platform for the materialist in you (you want it) Cardew's large scale installation at The SPACE, St Johns Road, St Leonards.
As part of Tempo Arts 2015 programme, several projects & events will take place at Electro Studios Project Space - ESPS in St Leonards-on-Sea.

On 2 July, a film screening of A 100-MILE CONVERSATION by artists Nathan Burr and Louis Buckley was presented at ESPS. The screening was followed by a Q&A session led by Nathan Burr.

In Spring 2013 Burr and Buckley walked the length of the South Downs Way, starting in Winchester and ending at Beachy Head. Along the way they walked and talked with everyone from farmers to psychologists to therapists and archaeologists to explore the connections between suicide, mental health, myth and landscape. The film documents the chain of conversations that took place over the nine-day journey.
