Open Sesame: Street

Creative Folkestone is delighted to announce a new opportunity as part of Open Sesame.


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.

We’re interested in presenting work in any medium but please bear in mind that the space is technically quite limited. To apply please send an email to describing your idea in in around 600 words or with a link to a short video clip (2 mins max), indicating which month you’d prefer.

Closing date: 5pm on Friday 9th October.

Open Sesame is subject to current Covid-19 guidelines which can be found here
