hosted by Loose Cannon
Loose Cannon is a community arts group formed in 2000 by a small group dedicated to the development of art and culture within the community.
Our priority is to connect different art-forms and different social groups as well as age-ranges in a fun and dynamic way.
Loose Cannon has collaborated with Deal Town Council, Walmer Parish Council and The prosperity network to provide projects such as:
"The Spirit of Deal" which provided a framework for the local art community to help the town regenerate in the recession of 2008-11
"The Burning Bush Gallery" A 3-year project to showcase the arts in Deal.
"The Roman Invasion" collaborating with Bob Martin in Sandwich to provide a history/arts event in August 2006 which paraded Romans, school-children and a 16ft Julius Caesar puppet.
Loose Cannon also provided outdoor arts events for children for Walmer Parish Council during this period.
