Returning for Village Green 2019 is Artist Village, a programme of new artworks created especially for the festival and Chalkwell Park. Organised by Jon Kipps, an artist/curator from Southend, who has invited a group of four artists this year who use a range of approaches from site-specific sculpture to artworks generated with the help of communities.
The artists will be spending time in Chalkwell Hall this Spring getting to know the area and developing ideas before returning in the Summer with their finished artworks adding an exciting visual layer to the festival experience.
Join us for FUTURE PARK Village Green Special on 13 June - with talks by Artist Village artists and other artists presenting their work at the Festival.
The first Artist Village took place in 2016, you can watch a short film from that year here.
This project has been made possible by the kind support of Arts Council England and Metal.
