I was delighted to be invited to open Chalk it Up's Inspiration=Dover event. The evening really showcased the best of local talent, and put Dover on the map for the arts in Kent.
Over the past 10 years Dover Arts Development have engaged 126 artists in thirty projects in Dover, and have brought over £600,000 in finance to the district.
The event showcased 14 artists who have been working closely with Dover's museums and heritage sites in a programme of music and visual art. The event also included exhibits that are due to be installed around Dover for both visitors and local people to enjoy.
It is important that we work to promote the arts locally in any way we can. Not only does local talent deserve to be promoted, but the arts encourage tourism that is important to our local economy.
