Folkestone Trienial is the flag ship project of the Creative Foundation and independent visionary arts charity dedicated to enabling the regeneration of the sea side town of Folkestone.

Russian Television required the story of the Folkestone’s Gold Rush to be shot,edited and then delivered via the internet to their HQ in Berlin.

"Folkestone’s gold rush began last August, when 30 bars of bullion worth a total of £10,000 were buried in a strip of sand just inside the Kent town’s tiny harbour. The new prospectors who descended on the beach were unwitting contributors to what was billed as a “participatory artwork” – although most were perhaps more interested in a slender chance to redeem lives blighted by poverty."
