Project Description

Margate Reimagined

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
