4Seasons

Delivered in partnership with Bexhill Your Way, 4Seasons is a visual arts programme working with a group of adults with mental health issues. As the name suggests the group meet at quarterly intervals, to visit the galleries and studio. The group discuss and reflect on the artworks, and experiment with ideas, materials and processes found within the galleries to produce individual work in response.

Connecting Cultures

Delivered in partnership with the ESOL programme at Sussex Coast College, this strand of our CONNECT programme* engages with migrant communities to explore ideas around identity and place and develop language skills, through tours and creative sessions using the Pavilion’s heritage, design and exhibitions programme as catalyst.

Heritage Research

This strand of our CONNECT programme* engages local people in oral history research piecing together personal narratives to enrich and deepen our understanding of the story of the De La Warr Pavilion.

The Musical Matinee Club

Presented in partnership with Bexhill Dementia Action Alliance this series of relaxed, enhanced film screenings are specifically designed to welcome people who may benefit from a more informal environment, including with those living with dementia and disabilities and their carers. The screenings are enhanced by props to be used at ‘magic moments’ to bring the action on film to life in the auditorium. After the event, members are encouraged to take the props home and use them to open new conversations and connections.

Supported by the BFI, Film Hub South East, Sussex Community Foundation and Gaby Hardwicke Solicitors.
