This project was funded on 14 Sep 2021!

We currently have permission to use three out of four proposed sites for this project. We are currently in the process of securing the fourth and expect this to be confirmed within the next few weeks. No funds will be transferred to the project until written confirmation has been shown to Spacehive. The project will work with: 4 local artists,4 local primary schools 4 historical locations We will play, create and develop four virtual spaces that will transport the viewer into an immersive world of Folkestone's unseen local history. Encouraging people to leave their houses and participate and interact with arts and culture of their locality through engagement with the overall project. This in turn is intended to create potential positive social interactions which could support the growth of people’s mental health, due the the experience being delivered during a time when statistically we see a decline in people’s mental well-being.

What we'll deliver:

  • Work with 120 local primary school children
  • Install 4 virtual performance spaces
  • Engage with the local community
  • Employ four local artists
  • Use sustainable materials
  • Engage with local culture and heritage
  • Engage with local businesses

Why it's a great idea:

Our project will enable people who may not be able to visit the sites independently to still feel connected to it and enjoy the experience from the comforts of their own home. We will be able to provide 4 artists with income investing back into the local economy and support and advertise local businesses through their donations and support towards our crowdfunding campaign. We will be able to provide 120 school children the chance to engage with local culture and heritage and promote STEM and cross-curricular education through artistic activity. Work with sustainable materials reducing our impact on the local environment. We will be able to engage the local community to explore culture and heritage and also promote healthy activity in how the virtual spaces are accessed. We will be able to create an intergenerational sharing of cultural and heritage information. We will be able to create a sense of social belonging and involvement through the investment into local culture.

Steps to get it done:

  • Confirm the schools.
  • Confirm the locations for the plaques and sculpture.
  • Confirm artists, allocate historical location, plan workshops.
  • Purchase Equipment.
  • Introduce artists to the schools.
  • Deliver workshops to schools.
  • Process physical artworks into digital content for the virtual spaces.
  • Install the plaques and sculpture into their respective locations.
  • Open project to the local community.
  • Evaluate impact of project.

Using a variety of different art forms, from dance to visual art, including digital, and auditory storytelling techniques the whole community will be able to access virtual spaces - enjoying their own individual immersive sensory experience as they scan their way through time.
