Margate Rocks 2008

Margate Rocks 2008 is less than a month away now so it seems like a good time to write about it. In case you do not know it is a visual arts event that takes place in each year. Among the highlights this year are an "environmental activism filmmaking workshop" (hosted by director Franny Armstrong) and a long list of names in art such as Millie Burton, James Cauty, Shelly Goldsmith, David Shrigley ... and so on. The site for the project gives a better discription than I could as well as lsiting all the things to see and do this year.

"Margate Rocks is a contemporary visual art festival based in Margate, on the beautiful east coast of Kent. Taking place between 2 – 11 May, this year’s festival has the theme of art and ecology."

Many of the events are free and suitable for all the family. It runs from Friday the second of may untill sunday the eleventh. There is a free after party too indie pop music from Jigsaw Project as well as "...favourite party tunes from across more genres than you can shake a stick at." You can confirm attendance at the party, for free, here.

Here is a map for those unclear of the location of the bar in question.
