DAD (Dover Arts Development) on behalf of the Land Trust are seeking expressions of interest for an exciting new artists commission for The West Wing Battery at Fort Burgoyne in Dover as part of the Pioneering Places: East Kent project. The West Wing Battery is a Scheduled Ancient Monument and part of the wider Fort Burgoyne complex, a remarkable military site originally built in the 1860s to defend Dover from invasion and in permanent military use until 2006. The artwork should enhance the site for local residents, tourists and new residents of the adjacent planned housing estate. The work should help to deliver interpretation for the site and facilitate long-term community activity.
The deadline for expressions of Interest 6th September 2019
Pioneering Places is part of the national Great Place Scheme, an ambitious project that will make East Kent an even better place to live, work and visit by exploring heritage, developing civic pride and connecting artists and communities. Four projects in Canterbury, Dover, Folkestone and Ramsgate are being led by cultural organisations to encourage local people to get involved and shape the place where they live. Supported through Arts Council England and the National Lottery Heritage Fund, with Historic England and Artswork, the South East Bridge.
