9:00 am to 5:30 pm, 04 November 2017
Quarterhouse, 49 Tontine Street, Folkestone CT20 1BN
Friedrich Ludewig, The Decorators, Diane Dever, Stroom, and Charles Quick are among the speakers at this event exploring situated practice, contemporary art, architecture and urbanism.
'Border' is the final event in a three-part series with Folkestone Triennial 2017 to bring together practitioners and thinkers at three 'edge' locations connected by the High Speed 1 railway, to consider creative place-making, arts-led urbanism, and the use of interstitial spaces in the city.
For the third and final event, we consider Folkestone. At the littoral edge of southeast England, its urbanism connect equally with water and land. From 1842 to 1992 it was the main pivot for passenger transport between France and England, and with the more recent construction of HS1, Folkestone has been gifted the questionable status of dormitory suburb to the Capital.
