Folkestone Artworks Tour

Date uploaded: June 16, 2014

As part of this years Open Quarter event, visitors are welcomed to join Folkestone Triennial Public Programmes staff for two different special tours of the Folkestone Artworks Collection. Tours will take place on Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd June 2014.

On Saturday the 21st of June 2014, Programmes Coordinator Frances Chiverton will conduct a tour starting at FOLKESTONE QUARTERHOUSE at 10.30am, with paticular focus on the Harbour area artworks.

Visitors on Sunday the 22nd can join Folkestone Artworks Curator Hannah Conroy for a tour focusing on the artworks around the Leas promenade. This tour will start at the BANDSTAND ON THE LEAS at 1.30pm.

Folkestone Artworks is the new name for the collection of works originally commissioned by the Creative Foundation for the Folkestone Triennial that are now on permanent display in public spaces around the town. The collection after the first two Triennials boasts 16 artworks by an array of young, emerging talent as well as more established artists.

It is envisaged that Folkestone Artworks will continue to grow after each new Triennial, helping to further develop Folkestone’s reputation as a unique destination in the UK for those who enjoy contemporary art. Experiencing art outside the confines of a gallery or institutional setting encourages different ways of seeing, learning and thinking about contemporary art.

Tours are FREE but booking is essential - click here to book tickets.
