Abstract or Description:

The 2021 edition of Margate NOW festival, 'Sunken Ecologies', took on the human-made natural environment and the possible role, participation and responsibility of cultural practitioners in caring for, engaging with, reclaiming or reimagining green spaces. The festival primarily took place at the Sunken Garden in Westbrook, Margate, a garden landscaped in the early 1930s on the site of a former chalk quarry and under the care of the community group Sunken Garden Society since 2018. All commissioned for the festival, the artworks ranged from permanent, functional sculptures serving the storing, composting, and sitting needs of the Sunken Garden, to ephemeral or immaterial contributions, such as sculptural and landscape interventions, walks, texts, sounds, films, workshops, and talks.
