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.
