Looking back at SALT Festival of the Sea and Environment 2018

6 - 9 September 
Various locations in and around Folkestone Harbour

Returning for its third year, SALT Festival of the Sea and Environment took those involved on a creative and inspiring journey through the landscape and culture of the coast around Folkestone. There were opportunities to walk, talk, make, write, observe, have fun and share ideas over good food in the great outdoors. SALT is co-curated by Folkestone Quarterhouse, Folkestone Fringe and Go to the Pine, with ideas gathered from the local community. In 2018 this year, we collaborated with The Ash Project; Creative Europe’s Magic Carpets  programme; and Guardians of the Deep, as well as taking part in the 50th anniversary of the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Be re-inspired by re-living the discussion, experiences and embodied senses of 2018's SALT Festival by reading the downloadable reviews/thought pieces.                                      >>>> click on the boxes to your right >>>>
