The 2010 Whitstable Biennale Satellite Programmes is a showcase of artists from Whitstable and all over the UK. Over seventy-five projects and events will take place during the 2010 Biennale. The works encompass a broad range of artistic practices – from a parade of people making birdcalls to an exhibition in a caravan that changes daily; from a disorientating audio tour of Whitstable which guides you by the sounds of Marrakech, to the return of the ‘guerilla knitters’.
All of the participating projects take Whitstable as their starting point, but leap off to follow entirely different trajectories. This promises two weeks of rich, diverse and sometimes absurd experiences which highlight Whitstable as an inspirational location for artists at all points in their careers to share new ideas.
The Satellite Programmes will be accompanied by a publication in the form of a free newspaper which will feature all of the participating projects and a full schedule of events.
This is the official blog site created for the Whitstable Biennale Satellite programme taking place during the biennale. Watch this space for updates!
