GLUE - New Curator Platform




Folkestone Fringe announces the launch of a new curatorial platform, GLUE. Created in response to a year of cancelled degree shows, inaccessible studios and cuts to staff and budgets. GLUE tackles reports of dwindling opportunities for art students and facilitates exhibitions alongside the international Creative Folkestone Triennial.

GLUE launches with an open call running from 1st June - 1st July 2021. The open call welcomes submissions from artists, curators or collectives who are final year students, recent graduates and postgraduate students from UK art schools or alternative programmes.

We're seeking artists, curators and collectives who are energetic and entrepreneurial. This open call is for people who may have missed out on the catapult moments that degree shows can provide, and are looking to create opportunities that define their futures.

Part of the Folkestone Fringe Triennial programme, the commissions are for two separate contemporary exhibitions in Folkestone, the first taking place throughout September and the second taking place throughout October. Capitalising on the energy of the Creative Folkestone Triennial, GLUE requires proposals that are innovative and ambitious. We will be selecting two proposals for these opportunities.

About TWF:

This Week in Folkestone (TWF) is a bold and inclusive platform: a forthright publication that highlights the values 'subcultures’ bring to Folkestone’s unique journey of transformation through cultural regeneration.

Through TWF we investigate the invisible, the underground, the underrated and emerging. We acknowledge the pioneering and grass-roots groups that help to sustain the creative transactions between local heritage and art, promote the cultural currencies that bear the essence, character and unique idiosyncrasies of Folkestone and draw parallels to far beyond.

By employing journalistic investigations, philosophical essays, poetry, photography and fiction, TWF challenges the cultural status-quo by presenting together diverse local and International voices.

About Risograph:

Risograph or ‘riso’ is an environmentally friendly printer, which uses soy-based inks to produce unique outcomes, working best with recycled papers. The transparency of the soy-based ink lends to riso’s special methods of colour mixing, the textural results of riso range from crisp to noisy, and the registration of slight inaccuracies are what contribute to the prints expressive and distinctive nature.

Acerca de TWF:

Esta semana en Folkestone (TWF) es una plataforma audaz e inclusiva: una publicación directa que destaca las 'subculturas' de valores que aportan al viaje único de transformación de Folkestone a través de la regeneración cultural.

A través de TWF investigamos lo invisible, lo subterráneo, lo subestimado y lo emergente.

Sobre Risograph:

Risograph o "riso" es una impresora que respeta al medioambiente, que utiliza tintas a base de soja para producir resultados únicos, que funcionan mejor con papeles reciclados. La transparencia de la tinta a base de soya se presta a los métodos especiales de mezcla de colores de riso, los resultados texturales de la gama de riso de nítidos a ruidosos y el registro de pequeñas inexactitudes son los que contribuyen a las impresiones expresivas y distintivas.
