SALVAGE Festival

Salvage with date

SALVAGE Festival is a one-day festival of site-specific performance art taking place on Saturday 21 September 2019 at various sites across Folkestone and The Warren.

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, but instead have been asked that they deeply engage with the site responsive, reclamation & ecologically sensitive conditions of the festival's invitation.

Keep an eye out on Instagram for more artist announcements throughout August.
