Creative Regeneration

Creative Regeneration

Public artworks offer opportunities for cultural engagement and social exchange. Folkestone Artworks, the UK’s largest free and accessible outdoor contemporary art exhibition, expands for 2019, offering 15 new installations. The works are located in unexpected spaces across the town, some of which have been repurposed from disused and neglected sites. This creative regeneration invites communities to reflect upon the changing landscape.
