Margate’s long-running social explores the work of a group of artists inspired by the First World War and TS Eliot. Starting with the dramatic Lochnagar Crater site in France, and the stories behind it, Dawn Cole, Dan Thompson, Helder Clara, Graham Ward and Lorna Dallas-Conte are working on the From Wasteland to Wasteland project. Together, they’ve visited the battlefield site, drawn connections with TS Eliot’s poem The Waste Land, and made new work as a response. This First Friday showcases that work, and the research behind it, for the first time.
Richard Dunning MBE, owner of Lochnagar Crater will be giving a talk during the evening.
Bring your own refreshments.
Also open Saturday 3rd June 11am – 3pm
