Pioneering Places East Kent

Pioneering Places is part of the national Great Place Scheme, an ambitious project that will make East Kent an even better place to live, work and visit by exploring heritage, developing civic pride and connecting artists and communities.

Four projects in Canterbury, Dover, Folkestone and Ramsgate are being led by cultural organisations to encourage local people to get involved and shape the place where they live. Supported through Arts Council England and the National Lottery Heritage Fund, with Historic England and Artswork, the South East Bridge.

All the projects are working with Artswork on a schools programme that will enable the young people taking part to achieve Arts Award accreditation and the participating schools receive Artsmark status. They will be creating a programme of consultation, activity and artwork commissions at Folkestone Gasworks, Ramsgate Harbour, The Kit in Canterbury, and Fort Burgoyne in Dover.

The Pioneering Places website at culturalplacing.com brings together research on cultural place-making, commissions articles and gathers and disseminates feedback from the four projects.
