The Folkestone Triennial is one of the most ambitious public art projects in the UK. The fourth Triennial (entitled “double edge”) is taking place from 2 September 2017 to 5 November 2017. Artists are invited to use the town as their ‘canvas’, utilising public spaces to create striking new pieces that reflect issues affecting both the town and the wider world. Previous triennials have included works by Cornelia Parker, Tracey Emin, Jeremy Deller, Mark Wallinger, Martin Creed and Richard Wilson. Many of the artworks have become permanent additions to the town’s striking collection of public art.
There will be a private tour of some of this year's exciting works led by a member of Folkestone's Creative Foundation which has curated the Triennial. Then in the afternoon there will be an historic and cultural walking tour of the town, led by Blue Badge Guide, Jonathan Fenner, giving a flavour of the town’s rich history especially during the two world wars.
This event is limited to 20 participants. Please note that there is a lot of walking and people will be on their feet for several hours!
This event has been organised by the Kent Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
