The strength of community-led response and activism in relation to COVID-19 and Black Lives Matter has led DLWP to ask how it can better support this work. In  Spring 2021, the De La Warr Pavilion began a  lively series of events that  connected people, groups and places, encouraging learning and knowledge sharing between organisations and publics.

Each event has been co-devised with organisations, artists and individuals committed to creating social change. These include Project ArtworksTransition Town Hastings, The Buddy Project: Hastings, Rother and Wealden as well as actor, writer and artist Anna-Maria Nabirye,  artist Amy Cunningham. Examining varied approaches to care and active citizenship, these online talks, workshops and events invite us to find new ways to act with care in our own lives, collaborating with those around us to create a more equitable society.

An online workshop,  Sound & Light led by artist Amy Cunningham,  worked with participants to create  and audio visual postcard using sounds and images created at home.

Culture and Migrant Rights, was and online talk co-designed by The Buddy Project: Hastings, Rother and Wealden. You can watch it here.

Citizens are Designers is a project run by Sarah Macbeth and Anna Locke of Transition Town Hastings . They have created downloadable resources, a mapping tool and an online workshop  took place to support people to be designers of local, place-based community action.

Coming To Our Census? asks the question: “Is a census really the best way to find out about who and how we live in the UK?” Led by artist, director and writer Anna-Maria Nabirye, you can read more here. 

Town Tales, Home Stories is a website app that aims to increase participation in local and cultural heritage by enabling everyone to hear and record place-based stories. You can access the app here.

Who Cares? was an afternoon exploring the meaning and value of care, in collaboration with  Turner Prize nominated collective of neurodiverse artists and activist Project Art Works.  It reflected on care, its realities, and how art and cultural workers have addressed the changing landscape of care over the past year.

You can see all past events below and the online workshops will be on our YouTube channel shortly.
