The Creative Foundation

The Creative Foundation promotes culture, creativity and the arts in Folkestone, transforming and regenerating the most deprived area of the old town into a new Creative Quarter, and making Folkestone a great place to live, learn, work, play and visit.

The Creative Foundation is playing a lead role in the development of best practice in arts-led regeneration in the UK. The Folkestone Triennial is the flagship event in the Foundation’s programme and is the largest, most ambitious recurring exhibition of newly commissioned public art in the UK, led by Curator Andrea Schlieker. The Triennial has been cited as a model of how world-class contemporary art practice can be embedded in a local context and contribute lasting positive changes to that community.
