About Hastings Creatives

This directory has been developed as a resource for the creative businesses in the Hastings and St Leonards area. If you run a creative industry, please add your business details by selecting the Create a listing. Your details will be added to the directory.

If you are looking for a particular creative service in the area, search the Creative directory.

The categories take into account the Department of Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) categories of creative industries, but we have added additional categories where we felt it would be helpful. The website has been developed with support from Hastings Borough Council and the Media Enterprise Centre (University of Brighton), but it is run as an independent resource.

The website has been developed in response to a request from members of the Hastings Creatives email list. Hastings Creatives currently has nearly 600 subscribers including artists, designers, illustrators, photographers, performers, musicians, film makers, web developers and copywriters. The Hastings Creatives email list provides a very immediate way to circulate information and get feedback. This website complements the email list by providing a database of contact details for businesses and event listings.

There is no charge for you to add your listing information or to search the database for creative services.
