The Kent Cultural Baton is a mobile public artwork which will result in the creation of an alternative cultural map of Kent. In the lead up to 2012 the Baton will travel around Kent, discovering, collecting, and reflecting its location wherever it visits. At each place its visits there will be artist lead workshops and events that aim to gather significant stories, sounds, and images that relate to the area.
To celebrate the beginning of the Baton’s journey a special series of one day interventions will take place during the Baton’s stay in Whitstable. The artists invited include John Adams, Rosa Ainley, Bridgette Ashton, Erin Newell, Kiki Taira, Duncan Ward, Charlotte Warne Thomas and many more, please visit the Kent Cultural Baton’s website for further details.
