Creative Folkestone (UK)
The Creative Folkestone is an arts charity, which has spent 15 years using creative activity to make Folkestone a better place to live, work, play, study and visit. By mobilising the incredible artistic resources already in the town and working hand in hand with the community, our partners and stakeholders, we have established 5 main projects: the Creative Quarter, Quarterhouse, Triennial, Book Festival and Folkestone Artworks, through which we are transforming the town and surrounding area.
