Abstract or description

Assembly Margate was the first of the a-n Assembly events to take place during May and June, 2017. Hosted across a number of arts spaces in the town, a-n devised a programme of events with Margate-based social artist Dan Thompson.
In Margate, as in much of the South East, the influx of new artists, priced out of London, brought opportunities but also created tensions. Art was a contentious subject in a town with some of the most deprived areas in England. With a small population and a huge variety of studio spaces, galleries and artist-led projects, there were further tensions between the diverse groups of artists as they found new spaces, new ways of working, and new ways to fund their work in the town.
The Assembly events in part responded to this context, with formal talks and workshops complemented by artist-led tours, a social night out and opportunities for networking and discussions with fellow artists and the a-n team.
