Kieren Reed
Raising the Sittingbourne Barn: Exhibition

Tuesday 17 April – Saturday 21 April 2018


Artist Kieren Reed is collaborating with people from Sittingbourne and further afield to create a functional artwork for Milton Creek Country Park, Sittingbourne.

In summer 2019 the barn will be ‘raised’ by the community, an act of theatre for participants and spectators, with the lifting of the largest sections of timber and the performance of other traditional construction rituals, including ‘topping out’ and a feast on-site at the end of each working day.

Over 2018/2019 participants are coming together for events, and will be trained in self-build techniques, use of tools, carpentry and construction processes.

An exhibition was held from Tuesday 17th to Saturday 21st April 2018, barn-raising research and materials at No 34, High Street, Sittingbourne. Drop in and chat consultation with local people to discuss ideas.
