Devonshire Youth Collective and Sanctuary have joined forces to work with Nadina Ali to bring some creative energy to the streets of Eastbourne! Love, Empathy, Respect, Dignity is a newly commissioned public artwork by Nadina Ali, in collaboration with Devonshire Youth Collective and Sanctuary. Commissioned in partnership with Eastbourne ALIVE, in celebration of the Turner Prize 2023.
Nadina Ali a graphic artist from Marseille, currently based in London. She’s passionate about social justice and representation and uses bold and colourful typography to address those topics in a way that is easier to engage with for a wider range of people. She’s also passionate about making art and creativity accessible to as many people as possible, especially people who don’t traditionally have easy access to art. Through her work, she also aims to amplify the voices of under-represented people.
Devonshire Youth Collective is a free monthly collective space for young people aged 16-25 to get inspired, think and create together. You don’t need any prior experience or skills in art or creative practice to take part, and sessions are designed to be inclusive and accessible. No need to book, just turn up. Join us for future sessions on the last Wednesday of the month, 6-8pm at DC Learn Studio, 1–5 Seaside, Eastbourne BN22 7NA (opposite Thayer's Ice Cream).
Every Friday morning, Sanctuary opens a gathering space for refugees, asylum seekers and migrants at All Souls Church Hall. As well as the creative activities, they offer immigration support, signposting to GP’s, mental health services and other community projects, translation services and asocial space for people to gather and chat.
