With picnic and comfy shoes at the ready, Axisweb are off to sunny Folkestone to take a look around the Folkestone Triennial.
Folkestone Triennial takes place every three years and this year artists are invited to consider the theme of ‘the lookout’. Internationally recognised contemporary artists will engage with Folkestone’s rich cultural history and the town’s built environment. They will exhibit newly commissioned work in public spaces around the town.
Axisweb will be visiting from 11am - 6pm on Tuesday 30th September 2014, starting at the Quarterhouse in Mill Bay.
This is your chance to get a unique insight into event. We’ll be hearing from curator Lewis Biggs as he tells us about the planning, work, opportunities and challenges that go into running one of the most ambitious public art projects presented in the UK. With James Moores, Lewis founded the Liverpool Biennial in 1998 and was its Artistic Director and Chief Executive from 2000 - 2011. He was Director of Tate Liverpool from 1990 to 2000, is the founding Chairman of the Institute for Public Art, an initiative advocating artists' involvement in place-making through the International Award for Public Art.
We’ll be picnicking in the new park deigned by muf for the Triennial (weather permitting) before exploring the Triennal itself.
The day will end with bookable one-to-one advice sessions which are designed to help you improve your online presence. Whether you are wanting advice on using social media, writing for online audiences or some tips on improving your website, we can help.
Come along for a fun day where you can meet other members, gain a great insight into the Triennial and get some advice on improving your online presence.
Tickets cost £10 for Axisweb members and £15 for non-members.
