The De La Warr Pavilion denounces racism in all its forms.

We all need to play a part in creating an equal society. As individuals and as an organisation, we will  listen, learn, speak up and take real action against racial injustice in order to create necessary systemic change.

We know that a diverse programme is essential, but it is not enough. We understand that people of colour need to be better represented in our workforce and governance and we need to continue to work in collaboration with people of colour within our communities.
