Salvage Festival was a one day, site specific performance art festival that took place at various sites along Folkestone's harbour and coastline. Invited artists examined notions of reclamation, ecological sensitivity, damage control, value and care - within current socio-political frames of late capitalism and environmental collapse.
Artists were not given a materials budget and instead, asked to engage deeply with the site responsive, reclamation & ecologically sensitive conditions of the festival's invitation.
Curated by Benjamin Sebastian. Supported by Lise Boucon.
