Artist call out for Folkestone51 Climbing Wall

F51 Climbing


People United are looking for an artist to support their project at Folkestone51 climbing wall: ‘Holding On’.

This project comes from the Co-Design studio, a partnership between @kentrefugeeactionnetwork and @people_united_ , and is being supported by @folkestone51 and @teamsportstrust who are providing space and support for this installation, a climbable artwork for the highest climbing wall in the southeast. 🧗

They are looking for an artist who…

🎨 Has experience of working collaboratively with members of the public, e.g. with groups or individuals in community settings, ideally with specific experience of collaborative or co-design projects with young people.

🎨 Has a design and fabrication practice, ideally with specific experience of making 3D, durable or interactive objects.

🎨 Is based in the Kent or the South-East (including London). We will prioritise artists who are living and/or working in Kent.

This is a collaboration with young people who have first-hand experience of navigating the UK’s asylum system. We are keen to work with an artist who has a working understanding of our current asylum system, whether indirect, direct or through lived or professional experience.
