About England's Creative Coast

England’s Creative Coast is a landmark project between seven outstanding arts organisations — Cement Fields, Creative Folkestone, De La Warr Pavilion, Hastings Contemporary, Metal, Towner Eastbourne and Turner Contemporary — to create a new outdoor cultural experience that connects art with landscape and local stories with global perspectives.

It brings together the Waterfronts commissions, curated by Tamsin Dillon, and the world’s first art GeoTour, with each partner presenting their own section of the project and a local engagement programme at its heart.
