Crossings: Community and Refuge


Engaging audiences in questions of identity, belonging and sharing our world, the Lampedusa cross and Issam Kourbaj's poignant boat artwork, 'Dark Water, Burning World', come to Hastings for the first time in an exhibition co-curated by the Refugee Buddy Project.

The works have been loaned to Hastings Museum as part of the British Museum Spotlight Loan initiative.

Museum and exhibition entry is free. Current opening hours are Thursday - Sunday, 10am-12.30pm and 2pm-5pm.

Throughout the exhibition there are a number of special events including Highlight Tours and Open Draw sessions.
