We are delighted to announce the appointment of Edward Ball as the new Director for Devonshire Collective.


Edward will have oversight of the three key areas of our work: Volt Gallery and Project Space, the studios at Makerspace and our DC Learn education and outreach projects.


Edward’s track record is exemplary. He comes to us having worked at grant-making art and education charity Freelands Foundation, Camden Arts Centre and the arts organisation White Rainbow.


We are excited by his vision to develop the potential of Devonshire Collective through a wide-ranging programme in and outside of our spaces. Edward will be taking up this new post from 13 September 2021.

 “Our ambition has been to see Devonshire Collective creatively investing in and celebrating our local very diverse communities, through a programme of high calibre exhibitions and projects.  Edward brings experience, passion, and a wealth of potential to the organisation. We very much look forward to welcoming him to Eastbourne and the wider region.”

Lucy Day, Chair, Devonshire Collective


 “I am honoured to join as Director of Devonshire Collective, an organisation with great heart and energy, deeply invested in the communities of Eastbourne and East Sussex. Together with a fantastic board and team, we are ambitious to collectively envision DC’s next chapter: creating the conditions for creative practice to flourish, developing sustainable and nurturing partnerships, and centering Eastbourne’s young people and communities in all that we do.”

Edward Ball, incoming Director Devonshire Collective
