About the Threads SALONS


Artists Juliet Fleming, Jane Frances Dunlop, Colette Patterson and Ruth Waters, selected from an International Open call have been invited to bring work which will be installed into the Foyle Rooms at the Turner Contemporary. These Salons are discussion led events where the selected artists will present their work, followed by a question and answer session with the audience and panel of experienced creatives. This is an exciting opportunity for audiences to engage with artists and discuss topics surrounding the creation of contemporary art. There will be an opportunity to connect with fellow attendees and artists at the end of the question and answer session.

Nomadic artist-led gallery, Threads, have teamed up with six partners across East Kent to increase recognition of artist-led activity in the region.


Having delivered over thirty visual art critiques across Kent, Threads have identified and want to address the untapped opportunity for development that exists in peer-to-peer critiques and residencies. To do so, Threads have curated a nine-month programme, bringing together cultural ambassadors to strengthen the connections for arts organisations across the region, highlighting East Kent a must-visit destination for contemporary art.
