Folkestone Fringe Triennial 2021

What's Happening, Exactly?
22 Jul - 02 Nov 2021



Are you an artist, and want some help with getting your work out there? Are you a local group who are working on a project you’d like to share with others? Are you a business who has a spare wall and wants to be part of the map? Are you someone with a hobby, such as gardening, collecting, swimming, or something else that connects to the projects in our Fringe programme? Keep reading, this could be your chance to give ‘it’ a go.

Fringe Open is officially Open for all...and is the “Sub-Plot” to the biggest of all Plots. 

Fringe Open is the central platform for everybody planning creative activity during the Triennial. We offer a helping hand to all individuals and collectives to develop and express their creativity, no matter their age, background or experience - taking advantage of the excitement stimulated by the Triennial period. 

We want to encourage you to join in the fun and activity that takes over the town during the Folkestone Triennial. To do this - we will support you in showing your work, by helping you make connections; with timetabling; liaising with councils/permissions; with production queries; & with marketing.

Think this could be an avenue for you? We’d love to hear from you. If you’d like to share your work, event, exhibitions, or activities, email us on [email protected] to tell us about it, and we can start a conversation from there. Click the square to your left to download the Info Pack if you want to know just that little more before you reach out to us.

If you've got an idea already in place, feel free to fill in our FORM on the right & submit your interest. 

1st round deadline for submitting interest: 10th May 2021

Thanks to Creative Folkestone & The Roger De Haan Charitable Trust for supporting the coordination for Fringe Open.
