Whitstable Biennale

Whitstable Biennale is a contemporary visual art festival that brings people together to experience some of the most exciting new visual art being made in the UK today in film, performance and sound.

We work closely with artists early in their career to create new and experimental work, providing crucial time, space and support so they can take risks with their artistic practice, enabling them to develop new ideas and artworks at important moments in their careers.

As a small fishing town on the Kent coast, Whitstable has no big city infrastructure of cinemas, large gallery spaces and empty buildings, so we work with artists to find ways to weave their artworks into the fabric of the town, the idiosyncratic halls and huts, the alleyways and oyster beds, pubs, newsagents, beach huts, and bingo clubs, the working harbour and the steep shingle shoreline, and to work closely with the people who live and work there.

Whitstable Biennale is part of Cement Fields, our new umbrella organisation founded in 2019, which works closely with artists and communities along the Thames Estuary from Dartford to Whitstable.
