We have recently welcomed four new faces to the Pavilion’s Exhibitions, Live and Communications teams. Joao, Kate, Greg and Luke will be helping us produce our prestigious programme of visual art and live events, and tell you – our community, about them!

Joao Conceicao, Assistant Curator

“I’m beyond excited to be joining the DLWP team, as I have been admiring the programme for a long time. From commissioning artists that I admire to having relevant historical/group shows that present important subjects in today’s world, I see this position as an incredible opportunity to contribute to East Sussex and beyond. Previously I worked at Gasworks and Chisenhale Gallery, both based in London, now I am ready to help deliver the Pavilion’s exciting programme but also enjoy the South East coast and all that it has to offer.” 

Greg Norrington, Live Programme Assistant

“Music has been my life since I was about…12 years old, after watching the Cunning Stunts live DVD by Metallica. From then on, it was always my passion to work and be a part of the music industry, more specifically the live circuit. I went on to study Music and Entertainment Business Mgmt at Uni and five days after graduating, I managed to secure an internship at a live concert promoter in London, Kilimanjaro Live. I was fortunate enough to have 11 brilliant years there working on some amazing tours for Ed Sheeran, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The 1975, Gorillaz and Hans Zimmer to name a few. During the pandemic, my fiancé and I relocated down to East Sussex to begin the next chapter in our lives and the only company I wanted to work for was the De La Warr Pavilion. Luckily, a role became available at the beginning of the year and now the rest is history! I’ve joined Ed Frith on the Live Programming team and can’t wait for what lies ahead.”

Kate Lineker, Marketing Manager

“I have always been obsessed with anything creative, having performed from an early age and graduating in Performing Arts, I still find being backstage thrilling!  After a career in brand marketing, I moved to the south coast where I combined my love of art and performance with my commercial brand marketing career – or utopia as I like to call it!  The De La Warr Pavilion is a beautiful coming together of my love for live performance, art, the sea, and my community.  Having known the team for a long time, working with them on a freelance basis, I was thrilled when the opportunity to join them as a full-time member of staff came up – it’s great to be part of the DLWP family.”

Luke Furminger, Marketing Assistant

“I’ve always had a strong interest in creative media and marketing, and so joining the De La Warr Pavilion was an incredible opportunity for me that I just had to take! My main focus as a Marketing Assistant will be on the Coastal Culture Trail which promotes cultural tourism across Hastings, Bexhill, and Eastbourne. This is a project that really excites me as I have grown up in Hastings and explored this trail my whole life without even realising it, I love the fact that now I get to promote it to the rest of the UK. It’s a great opportunity to gain experience ahead of starting my degree in journalism this September.”

Keep an eye out for them when visiting our exhibitions and events! We look forward to seeing you.
