Sukkah building

Cliftonville Cultural Space (based at the Margate Synagogue/Shul) has collaborated with Margate-based artists Charlie Evaristo-Boyce and Dominic Rose to create a reinterpretation of a sukkah.

A sukkah is a temporary shelter built from found and natural materials during the Jewish festival of Sukkot which falls during the Margate NOW festival. It represents the shelters built during the Jewish diaspora’s 40-year exodus in the desert and relates to temporality, nature, environment and harvest. Dominic and Charlie come from different creative practices and disciplines including photography, installation, fine art and printmaking. Taking inspiration from traditional sukkah and organic structures, they have used natural materials collected over a period of time from The Garden Gate Project. A sukkah is built to eat, drink and celebrate in. For Margate NOW, it will be constructed on site and used throughout the day to bring together people from all local communities.

Everyone is invited to join us in decorating the structure and to enjoy live performances taking place throughout the afternoon.
