Friedrich Ludewig, The Decorators, Diane Dever, Stroom, and Charles Quick are among the speakers at this event exploring situated practice, contemporary art, architecture and urbanism.


The final event in a three-part series collaboration between the Folkestone Triennial 2017 and University College London. The series brings together practitioners and thinkers at three 'edge' locations connected by the High Speed 1 railway to consider creative place-making, arts-led urbanism, the sensory, social and environmental impact of their individual approaches, and together generate a narrative exploration of the creative use of interstitial spaces.

For the third and final event, we consider Folkestone. At the littoral edge of southeast England, its urbanism connect equally with water and land. From 1842 to 1992 it was the main pivot for passenger transport between France and England, and with the more recent construction of HS1, Folkestone has been gifted the status of dormitory suburb to the Capital.

Keynote: Friedrich Ludewig

Other speakers: Lewis Biggs, Lesley Hardy, Darrell Rohl, The Decorators, Diane Dever, Stroom, Charles Quick, Jonathan Ward, JJ Charlesworth, Princess Marilyn Douala Manga Bell, Sorcha Carey and Anthony Downey.
