De La Warr Pavilion and Towner Eastbourne are working together to programme holiday activities for families. We are collaborating to deliver an artistic programme for four East Sussex artists to develop their socially engaged practice across the current academic year.
Selected artists will be paired together to work as a duo. Each institution will work with two artists on site, and host regular practice development sessions. These two artists will deliver creative workshops at one location over four school holidays; Autumn school holiday, February school holiday, Spring school holiday and May school holiday. Workshops must respond to themes in the exhibitions on display, these will include themes such as environmental concerns, queer and trans intimacies, anti-racist practices and migration. As well as delivering workshops, the four artists will be supported as a cohort with regular practice development sessions at each institution. The research, both theory and practice-based, undertaken by each will be shared and contribute to the overall learning.
At the end of the programme the four artists will lead an open workshop for artists reflecting on their experiences, as an evolution of the workshop Acts of Transfer: Sharing Social Practice, held at Towner Eastbourne in May 2022.
This opportunity is now closed.
