Fri 9 Mar 2018 - Mon 2 Apr 2018

Over the past year local artists in South East Kent have been meeting to explore The Waste Land, to unpack the poem in a way that questions their own artist practice through a series of workshops and salons. The group now invites the public to participant in re-enactments of the salons delve further into Eliot’s epic poem.

These salons are presented in an informal setting at CRATE, encouraging an organic constantly shifting space for experimentation and display to continue responding to The Waste Land.

About the group: The Waste Land Salon features artists and members of the community from around South-East Kent who have been working together responding to The Waste Land for over a year in different locations in and around Margate.

Participating artists: Joseph Dance, Amanda Davis, Benjamin Hunt, Luke Jones, Nicholas Mortimer, Julia Riddiough, Cathy Rogers, Ruth E Rollason, Lizzy Rose, Valentina Serrati, Martin Tanton, Philippa Wall, Newton Whitelaw and more to be announced.
