Under the banner of Folkestone Is An Art School, would like to hear from creative educators who could deliver a stand-alone creative public workshop during Creative Folkestone Triennial.

We are looking to programme three, one-day workshops. The proposed creative workshops can be in any art form but need to utilise the 2021 Triennial theme ‘The Plot’ or one of the Triennial artworks as its starting point.

For further information on Folkestone Triennial please visit:

We welcome suggestions from artists, on the content, materials, location and the session length(s) of the one-day workshop, whilst remaining inclusive and engaging to varied audiences.

  • How to apply: Please complete the workshop proposal form and email your application, CV and/or any questions, with ‘Triennial Workshop Proposal’ in the subject line to

  • Eligibility: We particularly encourage those with a familiarity and/or attachment to Folkestone to apply. Open to artists/creatives with experience of running public workshops and will need to have a current DBS, their own public liability insurance and a Unique Tax Reference (UTR).
  • Fee: A maximum fee of £500 for a one-day workshop. This fee is inclusive of planning, delivery, travel, materials, installation, evaluation, support workers, meetings and any other costs necessary to complete the workshop.
  • Deadline: midday, 12 July 2021.

    Workshop Dates
    : Workshops need to be delivered between 7th August and 31st October 2021 we will work with workshop artists to book a date.

Notes: Whilst we hope that these workshops will be delivered outdoors on location in Folkestone – we need to be mindful that these workshops might have to be delivered fully online, subject to COVID-19 restrictions at the time of the event (if this were to be the case, we would support the workshop artist(s) in their delivery of an online workshop). We will set up and host the workshop from a technical point of view so there is no need to have a subscription to zoom. A good internet connection from your home/space would be necessary.

We will notify every one of the outcomes of their application, but due to the number of proposals we expect to receive it may not be possible to provide individual feedback on unsuccessful applications.
