Robot Tours at The Hastings Contemporary
  • Online The Hastings Contemporary
An opportunity to enter the gallery space from the comfort of a sofa, bed or seat at the kitchen table. Hastings Contemporary will initially be offering four public tours a week. Please email for dates.

The Hastings Contemporary is temporarily closed, but is using robots to give virtual tours of the gallery. The Double, a two-wheeled video-conferencing robot, provides real-time tours of galleries and exhibitions.

The telepresence robot, developed by Double Robotics, provides a revolutionary solution for arts organisations such as Hastings Contemporary in overcoming barriers of isolation. The gallery is delighted that through its adoption of this technology it will be able to continue to support families, children, and older visitors alike, offering opportunities to enter the gallery space from the comfort of a sofa, bed or seat at the kitchen table.

Moreover, Hastings Contemporary’s robot tours will help to communicate more widely the lived experiences of those with disabilities in a creative and collaborative manner, and will contribute to scientific research.

HOW TO BOOK
