Just Spreading the word of this interesting opportunity :)
Whitstable Biennale, June 19th- July 4th 2010
This exciting opportunity offers artists a day to showcase their work at the internationally renowned contemporary art Biennale in Whitstable, and to contribute to Kent Cultural Baton, a mobile artwork which will result in an ...alternative map of Kent.
The Kent Baton is a high profile KCC commission, which aims to celebrate cultural excellence in the lead up to London 2012.
The space is constructed of a converted Airstream trailer (370x215 x202cm internal space),and has a side opening which acts as a stage. The external surface of the space is highly reflective polished aluminium, and there is a periscope, generator and speakers.
The use of the space is free, there is no materials budget, but there is assistance in opening and safe usage of the space, and free marketing of the proposed intervention. The most innovative proposals will be given preference.
There are roughly two weeks available. Artists can collaborate in groups to use the space for one day, e.g. film screening, performance line up, group show etc
Submissions should include;
- Concept (no more than 1 side of A4)
- Website address of artist /CV
- Five images of previous work if not on website ( no more than 72dpi if emailing)
- Preferred date of intervention.

Deadline; April 30th 2010
