The Plinth invites people to find an empty plinth and use it to celebrate creativity and community. Over the course of The Plinth, hundreds of people have used the plinths in inspiring and imaginative ways. Here are a few examples.
Using #FolkestonePlinth we have created a massive, open exhibition across social media. Search the hashtag on Instagram to explore the wonderful creations that have appeared on plinths.
We have seen people using the plinth's to display their creativity in inspiring and imaginative ways. We have had everything from pottery to textiles, painting to mosaics, drawing to woodcarvings and everything in between.
If you explore #FolkestonePlinth on Instagram you will also notice that many people have used the plinths to celebrate themselves and each other. Sitting, standing, posing and performing on plinths, people have used this project as an opportunity for togetherness in a post-covid world.
There has also been a special mobile plinth that has been on a tour of local schools. We have worked with 17 primary and secondary schools to run creative workshops inspired by Banksy and The Plinth. in the first week alone more than 150 students took part in workshops.
