Sesame Street


Creative Folkestone is delighted to present a new opportunity as part of Open Sesame. In 2020, we invited artists to become part of Open Sesame: Street. 

Open Sesame: Street will animate the ground floor windows of Folkestone Quarterhouse with the work of artists and creatives from the town. We are offering monthly ‘residencies’ in the windows starting in October until end of March 2021.

Open Sesame: Street will form part of Last Fridays alongside neighbouring galleries, shops and studios on Tontine Street and the Old High Street. It’s a space for artists and community groups to showcase their work at a time when indoor public gatherings are subject to restrictions and the weather is turning a bit chilly for outdoor events.

We’re offering curatorial support through the Performing Arts & Learning team, full technical and installation support plus a commission of £750 to pay for artists’ fees and materials.

The Open Sesame: Street artists include:

  • Helen Lee
  • Oliver Parkin 
  • Sonia McDuff
  • Alexander.Probably 
  • Tell Me About Your Mother 

Stay tuned for more artist announcemnets.
