The second edition of The Rising we will be teaming up with Live Art UK’s Diverse Actions initiative to extend & expand the opportunity available to artists. This Rising will include one week's studio residency to develop artistic practice, a platform event (Saturday 18th November) and a culminating week of professional development with guest lectures & sessions.
The Rising give selected artists the time, space and required resources to try out new work and explore the edges of their craft.
The inaugural edition of The Rising launched the entire WAKE program and took place on the 17th of June during Folkestone’s Open Quarter weekend. See below for information on the artists platformed.
