A Walk with Shrines

A Walk with Shrines

Celebrating our love of books and what they mean to us.

Artists and authors join together in a walk building shrines to selected books and poems at chosen sites during the Margate Bookie 2018.

This film takes you on their journey through the making of the ‘ofrendas’ or offerings and the ritual of building temporary shrines at chosen sites during a walk in Margate.

The film was made with funding support from Arts Council England , Turner Contemporary, Margate Bookie, Kent County Council and Margate Festival Now.

A Thread and Word Production by the artist Elspeth Penfold and invited artists.
