Folkestone Triennial 2020

sat 5 sept - sun 8 nov 2020

There is a tentative bit of planning carrying on for our part in the Folkestone Triennial carrying on. The Triennial is currently set to run from 5th September - Sunday 8th November. This is the fifth edition, and will present around 20 newly commissioned artworks. Curated for the third time by Lewis Biggs, the exhibition, entitled The Plot, invites visitors to consider urban myths and their relation to verifiable realities: the gap between the story and reality. You can read about the artists taking part and the ideas behind the exhibition here. 


The Folkestone Fringe will be programming alongside the Triennial for the fifth time. We are looking forward to working with Folkestone based and visiting artists, as well as residents and local organisations to bring together a changing programme of art, architecture, performance and sound work. 

Take a look at our Edge: Push/Pull programme during the 2017 Folkestone Triennial. 


Fringe Open is our central platform for anyone planning any creative activity during the Triennial. Do get in touch with by contacting [email protected]  if you are thinking about putting an exhibition, or doing a performance, or if you have some space for an artist to use.


Starting when it is safe to - a last Tuesday of the month Fringe Social event will take place (location & time TBA). You'll be able to come and meet the Fringe team, see how we can help develop your projects and find out what others are planning. We will also share the key dates for getting your events onto the website and into print. 


We're also managing & representing one of the 20 artists creating brand-new site-specific artworks for Folkestone, inviting visitors to explore the town, its tales, realities, and urban narratives.
