We work with Further Education and Higher Education Institutions to help develop cultural awareness, critical thinking and research abilities and support the development of creative and entrepreneurial skills.

Industry-led Creative briefs

We work with colleges to deliver many ‘Industry Led Briefs’ that support students’ development of professional practice and creative skills. We welcome invitations from colleges for creative course that we can collaborate with. Last year we were thrilled to work with ESCG Eastbourne Design students and Bexhill College Art Foundation, Design and Fashion students on briefs resulting in presentations and exhibitions.
We also offer custom tours of our exhibitions for College and University groups that offer an in-depth insight into the artist practice, works and context of the exhibitions.

Guided tours

We lead tours of the building to explore its origins, design and influence, and tours of the exhibitions to unravel some of the ideas and processes found in the galleries. To find out more please get in touch: Dee.Haughney@dlwp.com

If you are planning an independent visit please let us know in advance to avoid overcrowding in the galleries.

Artist-led creative sessions

We work with local artists who can provide workshops that encourage experimentation and introduce creative skills and techniques responding to the themes of our current exhibitions. To find out more please get in touch: Dee.Haughney@dlwp.com.

Work experience

We host occasional work experience placements to support vocational studies, and enable students to apply and develop knowledge of cultural institutions and employability skills.

If you are interested in undertaking work experience at the De La Warr Pavilion, please contact Dee Haughney on Dee.Haughney@dlwp.com
