PROPEL, is a three-year programme of specialist studio provision in Hastings and Peer support for new and existing participants with complex needs and their families.


The Tuesday Accelerate Studios is a creative studio programme for adults with complex needs, including those with profound and multiple needs. An experienced artist team support the workshops to facilitate choice and exploration through art.

Within the studio, the artist team create changing installations and sensory environments to engage participants in collaborative and individual creative journeys.

A wide range of professional media and creative processes are available including: painting, drawing, printmaking, collage, sculpture, animation and photography. Participants also have regular opportunities to visit exhibitions and events at galleries, parks and nature reserves within the area.


Project Art Works’ Supported Studios enable adults with complex needs to develop their creative practice alongside an Artist Mentor and explore their potential as artists. The project is delivered at the Project Art Works studio base in Hastings.

We have created a studio setting where a diverse cohort of individuals, with the support of their family and key people in their lives, can further their learning and take more control over their own trajectory as artists. The studio promotes a group ethos, with participants’ developing their personal practice and adaptive skills whilst supporting and encouraging their peers.

Thursday & Friday

The artists and support worker have training in techniques such as Positive Behaviour Support, Person Centred Active Support and Total Communication.
