England’s Creative Coast takes you on an art journey through the South East’s stunning coastline of Essex, Kent, East and West Sussex. Discover new outdoor artworks by some of the world’s leading contemporary artists, visit outstanding galleries, play the first ever art geocache treasure hunt game and enjoy food, drink and more, for the ultimate stay.
England’s Creative Coast is led by Turner Contemporary and Visit Kent (Go To Places). The project is principally funded by Arts Council England’s Cultural Destinations programme and Visit England / Visit Britain through the Discover England Fund and supported by the South East Local Enterprise Partnership (SELEP), East Sussex County Council, Kent County Council, Essex County Council, Visit Essex, Southend Borough Council, Coastal West Sussex, Historic Dockyard Chatham and Southeastern.
Whitstable Biennale is part of England’s Creative Coast, working closely with lead partner Turner Contemporary, and other leading art galleries and organisations in the region – Creative Foundation, De La Warr Pavilion, Jerwood Gallery, Metal, and Towner Art Gallery.
In light of the current Covid-19 situation, the England’s Creative Coast commission launches are currently under review. Full details will be announced in due course.
