How 1930s innovators can help us survive the twenty first century

Stewart Drew

Luncheon on Thursday 15 November
12.15 for 12.45 p.m.
Stationers’ Hall
Ave Maria Lane
London EC4M 7DD

Stewart Drew is Director & CEO of the De La Warr Pavilion Charitable Trust. He studied the history of drawing and printmaking at Camberwell College of Art, worked at the Bankside Gallery (home of the Royal Society of Painter Printmakers), the Museum of London (C20 Ephemera Collection) and Crafts Council, before joining the De La Warr Pavilion in 2005.

Stewart will be telling the story of the iconic modernist seaside pavilion, named after the 9th Earl De La Warr, who was the driving force in its creation, and designed by Jewish émigré architects Erich Mendelsohn and Serge Chermayeff in 1935. Today the organisation has an international reputation for its visual arts and live programmes, whilst also remaining at the civic heart of the community.
