Margate Rocks 08 invites you to the seaside to join in the debate about the state of our planet by exploring the relationship between art and ecology.

Margate Rocks 08 invites you to the seaside to join in the debate about the state of our planet by exploring the relationship between art and ecology.

Drawing on the glorious, hotchpotch backdrop of Margate, a selection of emerging and established international artists, curators, filmmakers, writers, critics and scientists have been invited to comment on the realities of our planet’s ecological urgencies, and art’s relationship to them.

The programme explores the relationship between art and ecology through a programme of art commissions, exhibitions, workshops, talks, films, and music.
