The Young Creatives are a group of people aged 14 – 21 years interested in the arts, culture and creativity.

The Young Creatives play an active role in influencing the De La Warr Pavilion. Working as a team, alongside De La Warr Pavilion programmers and professional artists, they explore creative ambitions and develop new interests, knowledge and skills, while shaping and co-producing activity and events at the De La Warr Pavilion and the local area.

The Young Creatives meets regularly one Tuesday per month 6.30 – 8pm, and more frequently leading up to public events.

The Young Creatives conduct interviews with DLWP staff, performers and artists to gain a better insight to the organization and creative careers.

The Young Creatives produce public events for Dear Serge including Datamoshing: exploring ideas about identity, representation and visibility, and Context-Dependence: exploring ideas about synaesthesia, perception, memory and meaning.

This group was developed as a new model of participation for DLWP in 2017, during the CONNECT programme funded by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation.

“I came to the De La Warr Pavilion for my work experience and was interested in continuing an involvement through the arts. Becoming a Young Creative has been interesting and has introduced me to new ideas”

“The Young Creatives enables me to expand on my ideas around art and understand others ideas as well as developing skills of my own”

“Young Creatives allows a real insight into the running of an organisation like the De La Warr Pavilion”

“The Young Creatives is an escape from school – it’s more of a relaxed environment so its nice to have a break and come here”

“I found out about the Young Creatives through the Heart of Sidley Media Club after creating some trailers for the De La Warr’s summer outdoor screenings. My hobbies include animation and playing guitar”

While The Feeling were in the building, some of our Young Creatives were given the incredible opportunity to ask them about their journey into music. Watch their interview below.
