‘The Lost Gardens of Stoke-on-Trent’ is a weekend of artistic activity, reflection and discussion running from 16-18 September celebrating the thirtieth anniversary of the 1986 National Garden Festival, a major turning point in the regeneration of Stoke-on-Trent.
The project will involve the creation of new artistic commissions; a showcase of cultural activity in the city and associated events. Audiences will navigate around the Festival site and encounter the artistic programme at different sites via a marked trail. The project is taking place as part of the five-year Artcity programme of artistic activities in redundant and vacant spaces.
The ArtCity Consortium are seeking to select four site-responsive commissions open to creative practictioners at all stages of their careers, which will activate this hidden garden in the city. More information on the event and commissions can be found here.
Deadline: Noon, Friday 8 July 2016.
