This Autumn’s Quarterly Edition of the Margate Mercury Magazine, is now out, featuring the Margate Flood and Coast Protection scheme, aka Margate Steps - the coastal sea defence scheme I was commissioned to work on as project artist.

You can see the feature on pages 44 & 45

It has become a much loved and photographed addition to the Margate landscape, which is a brilliant story to tell.

The local community in Margate marked the opening of the steps with a celebratory ad hoc gathering, which was documented by Louise Oldfield on her Blog, Margate Architecture in May 2013

This landmark engineering project and new public space for Margate completed in 2013, was conceived by a multi-disciplinary & creatively collaborative design team consisting of landscape architect Tom Darcy from Jacobs, myself as project artist and coastal engineers East Kent Engineering Partnership & coastal risk managers - Herrington Consulting with Simon Herrington, under the guidance and lead of Mike Humber - Head of Maritime & Technical Services & Nick Dermott - Heritage Advisor to Thanet District Council. The project was funded by the Environment Agency and the MACH (Margate Arts Creativity Heritage) Project led by Sophie Jeffrey. Thanks to Ros Anderson & Photographer Dean Barclay.
