Calling all Artists to join the CHALKUP21 movement
CHALKUP21 is a 17-mile walking trail, showcasing 9 fine examples of 21st Century coastal art and architecture along the Strait of Dover from Capel-le-Ferne to Deal. Following Dover Arts Development’s 18-month launch programme of curated walks, workshops and events, the trail now exists for artists to use as a resource for creating their own events.
Be inspired by the website https://chalkup21.com
The trail is annotated with artists’ interventions, providing a fantastic and inspiring resource for artists. The website is a valuable research tool and archive with information on the nine structures, a ‘plan your visit’ section, artists’ responses and interviews.
Using social media avenues, join the artists and walkers documenting their physical and creative journeys!

CHALKUP21 offers many opportunities to artists. Why not bring your inspiration to this contemporary art & architecture trail?
One possibility, if you think you can offer a workshop, an “experience” (a walk, a tour, local expertise) to Air BnB guests then you can use the Air BnB experiences platform to market this to a huge number of potential visitors. This is a great opportunity to work with one of the trail venues, charities have a 0% commission rate with AirBnB, so you could spilt the revenue with them for access to the space:
I feel being part of a project involving practitioners from many different disciplines – art, architecture, design, conservation, geology, tourism etc – has made for a very dynamic and discursive experience. This has been very beneficial (not to mention fascinating) in broadening both my sense of potential in what I do as an artist and my general knowledge of place and engagement. Louisa Love
How does a place take root in a person? Dover has continued to gently take root in me, year after year, and as I continue to journey to other places, learning to experience places through the intimate, the microscopic, and the epic scales, through a grand sense of time. Anna Liu
