Playland: Re-imagining Communities brings together the narratives of a film commission and the memorabilia of everyday life as international artist Jivko Darakchiev and Folkestone based artist Nicholette Goff engaged with local communities to explore senses of place and identity through time.
This exciting project is being supported by a KCC members grant from Hod Birkby.
The time-based overview is contrasted with of possessions, tokens and markers of the lives of communities of the harbour district of Folkestone and exhibited in The Brewery Tap, a gallery which was once a vibrant pub at the heart of this longstanding but ever-changing community.
Local people have come together to share objects, photographs, stories and memorabilia that reflect how the changing nature of Folkestone has influenced communities and how, in turn, those communities have contributed to forging new identities for the town.
“This aspect of the project was made possible by the KCC grant and is an essential part of the exhibition,” said artist and curator Christine Gist.
