Devonshire Collective (DC) is a cultural and community organisation operating across a network of ex-retail sites in the Devonshire West ward, Eastbourne – a vibrant area with a long-standing community.

At our gallery, VOLT, we commission significant first solo exhibitions by emerging and underrepresented artists living in East Sussex and nationally. We are studio providers to a range of creatives and makers. DC Learn is our learning and engagement programme for families, young people and our communities in Devonshire West ward. Our galleries and programmes are free, and open to all.
