Turner Contemporary are asking donors to be at the heart of an exciting new project: to raise £15,000 and enable them to bring a life sized polar bear puppet, ‘Paula the Polar Bear’, to Margate sands this summer. The project will get thousands of people talking about climate change as part of their summer exhibition, Animals & Us. If the money is raised, ‘Paula the Polar Bear’ will roam through the town and across the beach throughout the summer season. Learn more here.
The Art Happens campaign will last for 4 weeks and the project will only be realised if the gallery is successful in raising £15,000. Donations can be made from as little as £5 and there are a number of enticing rewards on offer in return for your support. Turner Contemporary has worked with Margate based artist, Sprankenstein to create a limited edition canvas bag and an exclusive print. Other rewards include:
- A curator led tour of their summer exhibition, Animals & Us
- A unique set of postcards
- A puppeteering workshop
- An afterhours tour of the exhibition, Animals & Us for you and a group of friends followed by a drinks reception
