Dan Johannsen

Dan left his art foundation to continue working with the Fringe after volunteering at the 2016 SALT festival, and became a full time member of the team in February 2017.

During the 2017 Fringe festival Edge: Push/Pull Dan was given the opportunity to coordinate 3 projects; Fanplastic, Stone-to-Sand & Porous. It was this experience in project management that led to working with institutions like the Wellcome Collection to help organise a youth led late night extravaganza, as well being accepted onto the National Gallery’s Young Producer programme.

Originally intending for his time at Folkestone Fringe to be a stop gap before taking up his unconditional offer of Arts Management at Goldsmiths University, Dan has instead decided to pursue opportunities in Folkestone and with the Folkestone Fringe.

A long term, ongoing project for Dan is Fanplastic Folkestone; a plastic recycling unit that turns waste plastic into new, beautiful objects. Learn more here.
