We have been asked to facilitate a conversation between creatives working in this part of town and researchers Charlotte Lovell & George Corey.
It will start at 12.00pm and finish at 1.30pm. We will provide lunch and finish with a glass of sherry and a mince pie.
A few words from your hosts for the session:
“We are final year media production students currently writing Industry Research Projects about Folkestone. We are hoping to understand more about the creative community and workforce in Folkestone and how it has thrived and improved within a creative cluster. We want to understand the pressures that face the arts community and Folkestone’s wider place within the country. We also want to pose questions relating to ‘do-it-yourself’ culture and online activism. Focussing on how social media usage has improved business promotion and footfall to Folkestone’s creative cluster. We’d love to hear your thoughts and stories on socioeconomic positives and negatives that the creative industries have had on Folkestone as a whole.”
