"Pioneering Places" is an ambitious project funded by the National Heritage Lottery Fund and Arts Council England and delivered by Turner Contemporary. Part of the project is an exciting new temporary piece of public art to be installed near the East Cliff bandstand.
Since 2018, over 70 local children from St Laurence’s Junior Academy and Ramsgate Arts Primary have been leading this project. Turner Contemporary staff have been working with them through regular attendance at their schools and the provision of weekly creative workshops. As part of the project the children interviewed a number of artists to work with them to convert their ideas into a piece of public art and as a result, they then appointed Conrad Shawcross RA, a renowned British artist who has exhibited internationally.
