Artlands is a contemporary art programme which will explore North Kent’s identity through a series of public realm commissions – responding to and engaging with the unique qualities of the area; its landscapes, its heritage and its people. Artlands will create multiple and varied opportunities for artists to work in North Kent and will be a cumulative programme, beginning with the delivery of four commissions which respond to specific opportunities within the region.
Last year (2012) they were part of some amazing events, including the Ecology of Colour in Dartford, Kent (featured above) which brought a new hut to the towns park, that became the focal point for community related events and workshops. They are also part of the Swale and Medway Creative People and Places Consortium. (www.creativepeopleplace.info)
