Project Description

Margate Reimagined
Margate Festival 2019-20

Margate Reimagined was a present day vision of Margate with an alternative past. Bringing together heritage both real and imaginary this project speculated about a town that might have been, or could yet become. Margate Reimagined was commissioned by Margate Festival for their 2019/2020 programme which ran alongside the Turner Prize exhibition at Margate’s Turner Contemporary. The project consisted of a combination of walks, workshops, artistic & architectural proposals and poetry.

The Shop Front was used as a hub for the project, with an evolving window display and playing host to some of the workshops.

Project conceived and coordinated by Jon Spencer and Dominic Rose (under the banner of Transit Collective) alongside contributions from RL-a, Simon Cole walking artist and Margate Stanza.
