Playland: A Sense of Place
3rd December 2016 | by Christine Gist

Playland: A Sense of Place took place at Limbo Arts, 2 Bilton Square, High Street, Margate from 6-22 October 2016.

To engage with local people, artist Sharon Haward led two ‘Memory & Souvenir Afternoons’ at Margate Museum (10 & 24 September) where local residents, visitors to the Museum & volunteers could share their memorabilia, objects & stories about Margate’s past & present. Haward produced photo montages of this material which reflected changing times & places.

As an extension of Playland, Haward has installed large scale photo montages in Margate Station which will ensure a wide audience has access to the work which was inspired by Margate Museum. The photographs can be seen at the station from 10 December 2016.

Playland: A Sense of Place received the support of The Big Lottery Fund through Awards For All & a KCC Combined member Grant from Cllr Will Scobie.
