Artists Collaboration

As part of the larger Kings Gate partnership, in collaboration between Gingko Projects, DOCA, and Beautiful Creatures Theatre Arts, we are created a larger than life puppet to form part of the Amesbury Carnival procession in 2019.

DOCA were commissioned by Ginkgo Projects to create a Carnival project which reflects the history and heritage of the local area and connect new residents of the Kingsgate estate with the existing residents of the Amesbury area.

There were two bursaries for artists to work with our professionals to gain valuable experience and make new contacts. The work created was displayed at both Amesbury and Devizes. It was an opportunity for artists to have access to a quality community arts project which results in a spectacular processional piece.  Our bursary artists spent 10 days working with our professionals and local groups to support the creation of this exciting new work.
