Artists Now Announced

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

Generously funded by Bloor Homes and Arts Council England

DOCA have been 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.   

As part of the work we have offered two bursaries to artists who will work with our professionals to gain valuable experience and make new contacts. The work created will be displayed at both Amesbury and Devizes Carnival. 

This opportunity is intended to give an opportunity for artists to have access to a quality community arts project which results in a spectacular processional piece.  

Our bursary artists will spend 10 days working with our professionals and local groups to support the creation of this exciting new work.  

As part their experience our artists will create a media diary recording the process from start to finish.
