Artist Esther Collins worked with us to create Stuff Happens Here, a project which aimed to support artists aged 18 to 24 years on the Isle of Sheppey. Participants met and collaborated with artists, designers and filmmakers to develop practical skills and creativity, learn about organising events, expand their artistic knowledge, and to work with Whitstable Biennale.

The following artists took part in the project: Hannah LeesSam CurtisWork-formJo WaterhouseAndrew Kotting and Dylan Shipton.

Events

Esther Collins is an artist interested in curating situations that encourage people to share information and stories, finding out what they have in common. She produced Resort, a printed guide to Thanet, through gathering opinions and anecdotes from local people in Margate, Ramsgate and Broadstairs. She also recruited a team of KLAT artists to interview local residents in Hackney from a cardboard covered mobile hut, offering a cup of tea and cake in exchange for their conversation.
