FAILSTONE 2023-2024

Today (18/02/23), the Cultural Bridge programme has announced 15 partnerships between UK and German-based organisations, who have been awarded funding to develop cultural projects exploring issues facing communities across both countries. The aim of the Cultural Bridge programme is to act as a platform of artistic exchange, enabling artists to strengthen the exchange between the UK and Germany and foster cultural collaboration.

And so - we are beyond excited to announce our continued collaboration with FAIL Institute Leipzig, through the Cultural Bridge platform! Having had the opportunity to connect with FAIL through the Cultural Bridge 2021 - 2022 pilot programme, this year we continue to explore and learn from each other's perspectives and practices as arts organisations through the FAILSTONE project.

"FAILSTONE will create inclusive spaces for gatherings and creative expression in- and outside of the institutional realm with local communities in England and Germany."

This will include the FAIL Institute taking up a residency with Folkestone Fringe, from the Urban Room Folkestone, as well as the FF team visiting Leipzig, Germany to witness and work with a project within the organisation’s own community.

More details to come about our project in due course!
