Trustees

  • Christine M'Baye

    Chair

    I trained as a teacher in art & design and specialise in textiles.
    I have worked as a Hastings Arts Forum volunteer as part of the
    hanging team for several years and instigated Art on the Railings
    and the Forum’s representation at St. Leonard’s Festival.
    I co-ordinated the Hastings Arts Forum’s business plan
    and am committed to ensuring its delivery.

  • Kim Kish

    I studied painting and art history at Ohio University and currently work as a studio potter.  I have worked in contemporary art museums and galleries for over 20 years and currently work at the Jerwood Gallery, managing operations and exhibitions. I have recently joined the Hastings Art Forum and hope that I can bring my experience to help HAF grow and engage with the community.

  • Brian Ferris

    Treasurer

    I have been an active volunteer at Hastings Arts Forum for over
    four years.  Front of house and dealing with members of the
    public in a calm and efficient way has been my specialism during
    this time.  I have broad experience in many areas of employment
    and have been treasurer for many local charities.

  • Angela Childs

    Throughout my working life I’ve always worked with artists,
    for artists and alongside artists.  I’ve been working with and supporting
    Hastings Arts Forum for eight years as front of house, working with
    volunteers, curating, consulting and constantly networking to
    push the organisation forward in what is an exciting time for
    Hastings Arts Forum.

     

  • John Cole

    I have worked as a reportage and documentary photographer for
    over thirty years.  I’ve been a member of Hastings Arts Forum
    for seven years and as a trustee, I want to increase the Forum’s
    commitment to education as well as reaching out to the local
    arts community.

     

  • Gerard Loughran

    I studied textiles at the University of Roehampton as part of a teaching degree and have been in education for 37 years, 23 of those as a Headteacher.
    I really enjoy being involved with the Arts Forum, engaging with the wide variety of artists, volunteers, members and visitors within our community and beyond.
  • Yvonne Rees

    A member of Hastings Arts Forum for eight years and a trustee
    for two, I have extensive curating and hanging experience and
    am a trained fund-raiser.  As curator of the Stables Art Gallery
    and being involved with many other area art galleries, I’m
    committed to ensure the Forum builds strong partnerships.

     

  • Sally Meakins

    I trained at St Martins School of Art and would describe myself
    as a contemporary visual artist, freelance curator and mentor.
    As a trustee, a member of the exhibitions group and curator,
    it is my hope to help expand the variety of different art practices
    and art forms that are included in the gallery at Hastings
    Arts Forum.

     

  • Chris Roskell

    I graduated with a fine art degree in 1972. Since then I’ve worked
    as a specialist painter executing commissions for architects,
    interior designers and private clients.  I have always maintained
    an art studio where I do my work, which has been my sole
    occupation since moving to Hastings four years ago.

     

  • Olivia Shaw

    I am a marketing and communications professional.
    After working in the NHS for many years, I now run my own
    consultancy.  I am working to progress the aims of Hastings Arts Forum using my marketing experience.
