From each park bench in Kearsney Abbey and Russell Gardens in Dover there is a different view – equally from each park bench each person’s view will be different as they daydream, remember or become lost in the landscape.

PARK BENCH brings into focus the rich abundance and quality of creative practitioners living and working in Dover and the local area. During the summer of 2018 fifty-four visual artists and poets chose a park bench in Kearsney Abbey or Russell Gardens to draw and write from. The Park Bench video has woven these works together with the addition of five musicians and three of the poets voices on the soundtrack.
