On Tuesday 24 July at 11am, Ramsgate Arts is hosting a Creative Ramsgate symposium. We want to find out what creative people here feel would help them to make the most of their skill, whether they’d like to contribute somehow to the development of the town, or just what do they dream of achieving?
We’re really delighted to have Jane Priston joining us for the event as one of the speakers. She has been a ceramicist and tattooist, and has totally inspired us with the story of how she got the beautiful bronze statue of Amy Johnson erected in her home town of Herne Bay.
The statue was created by Ramsgate’s Meltdowns studios (now called Spacer) and this is a story of real bottom-up endeavour by an artist who has a vision and basically, nothing will stop that vision becoming a reality. What’s really inspiring is how the whole town got involved in helping to achieve that vision. And that’s the sort of ambition we have for Ramsgate, people coming together to make great things happen.
