The Heritage Lottery fund has awarded us a Young Roots Grant to work with students from The Royal Harbour Academy and some of the hottest names in the creative industries to produce a large multi-media arts project for the community in Thanet called Project SEAS.
Project MotorHouse’s partner on the project is Canterbury Christ Church University which houses the South East Archive of Seaside Photography will act as the stimulus for the students’ own work which will be produced with the help of Ramsgate artist/photographer Rachel Wilberforce.
Rachel is a rising star in the art world whose neon and Perspex piece Solaris is in the Arcade Hall at Dreamland.
The students will also work with engineers from Big Jelly Studios as well as world renowned music producer Adamski to create a sound track to accompany the exhibition and it will all be documented by Dan Whitehead a local video producer. Top graphic design company, Fresh Produce, will help students create a commemorative book of the project.
Theresa Smith of Mooch Public Realm Art and Design will get students to source stories from the community and choose images to incorporate into hoardings for building sites which will be manufactured locally by Blaze Neon. The hoardings will then be erected around Cardy’s Royal Sands site on Ramsgate’s seafront. It is hoped the project will expand to other hoarding around the town.
Watch the story of the project unfold. See the students and the mentors working together to produce their fantastic pieces of work from conception to the finished pieces.
