Young Creative Collective:
A partnership between the De La Warr Pavilion, The Magnum Photos Foundation and The Refugee Buddy Project mentoring young people from asylum seeker, refugee and migrant backgrounds to explore their creativity and creative ambitions.
This programme is running alongside a sister project run by The Mosaic Rooms, London in partnership with New Citizen’s Gateway. The Mosaic Rooms (MR) showcases contemporary culture from the Arab world and beyond, and their Learning and Participation ambitions for 22/23 align with DLWP both aiming to support more young people to achieve and progress their creative ambitions as well as facilitating artistic workshops that support wellbeing in young people. New Citizens Gateway works to promote the wellbeing of young asylum seekers and refugees in London. The two groups are engaging with each other digitally and physically to share experiences and ambitions.
