SALVAGE Festival

A one day festival of site specific performance art taking place on Saturday the 21st of September (2019) at various sites along Folkestone's harbour coastline.

Invited artists will examine notions of reclamation, ecological sensitivity, damage control, value and care - within our current socio-political frame of late capitalism and environmental collapse.

With contemporary performance art as its lens, Salvage Festival will explore what can, should and must be saved - what will end in wreckage - and how these processes will disproportionately affect minoritarian peoples and communities.

Artists have not been given a materials budget and instead; have been asked to engage deeply with the site responsive, reclamation & ecologically sensitive conditions of the festival's invitation.
