Storylines – the White Rock in Hastings will be happening from 12 to 6pm at Rock Alley, Claremont, America Ground.
We will be reclaiming and re-imagining a space, where the built environment meets the natural one, where the invisible past and the present are embedded in the landscape, but which is largely unknown and poorly used. We will have a programme for artists, historians and storytellers who will create and present in a single day a programme for a promenading audience – a show and tell of the history of the place; for a day, bringing it back to life.
The White Rock area’s story is largely untold. Its parts are the lost harbour of Kings Harold and William; a cataclysmic tsunami that silted it up; a settlement of merchants who occupied the derelict lands, declared independence, and asked to become a part of the United States; the Rock Fair, where we will site Storylines; the prosperous Victorian townscape built on the now – named ‘America Ground’; the seaside visitors; the new creative sector population regenerating it.
