Local artists Sara Wicks and Carlos Maria Romero have been working with 4 local community groups to explore Margate’s creative heritage and investigate how artists think and work through the On Margate Sands project.
The exhibition which takes place in Turner Contemporary’s Ground Floor space, collectively presents works produced by project participants from The Garden Gate Project, Laleham Gap School, Creative Adults Project and Kent Foster Care Association in a range of mediums including sculpture, ceramics and print making.
On Margate Sands is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund as part of the Archives & Access outreach programme led by Tate. Turner Contemporary have been working with a network of local partners to create new opportunities for local people to develop research skills, new networks and develop their knowledge and connections to arts and archives. The project has given participants the opportunity to explore local and National archives including visits to Tate Britain’s reading rooms in London and other local partners including Canterbury Cathedral and Dreamland.
