WHO: an artist to engage communities, gather research, or create new work for Samphire Hoe.
WHAT: Kent County Council's Arts Development Unit, on behalf of the Kent Cultural Baton Board, wishes to appoint an Artist in Residence for Samphire Hoe, Dover. The Kent Cultural Baton Artist in Residence will be hosted by Samphire Hoe in partnership with Eurotunnel and the White Cliffs Countryside Partnership. Places, journeying, permanence and transience are all themes that thread through the Baton project. The Residency programme offers artist's space and time to explore and respond to ideas of ‘place', through their own creative practice discovering what they see as the ‘hidden Kent' and unearthing or creating stories from a range of sources that speak of Kent's places, people and folklore. The selected artist in residence may identify key features, environment, histories and possibilities, and draw out the nature of the changing landscape.
WHEN: The residency will take place on selected dates in August 2011, culminating in a showcasing or live event at Samphire Hoe between 27-29 August 2011.
Deadline: 20 July 2011 ** Deadline expired**
