Margate Reimagined was commissioned by Margate Festival for their 2019 programme which ran alongside the Turner Prize exhibition at Margate’s Turner Contemporary. This project was delivered through a combination of walks, workshops, artistic & architectural proposals and poetry. Margate Reimagined is a present day vision of Margate with an alternative past. Bringing together heritage both real and imaginary this project speculates about a town that might have been, or could yet become.
Project conceived and coordinated by Transit Collective alongside contributions from RL-a and Margate Stanza
