Prospect Cottage, the iconic former home and garden of visionary artist, filmmaker and activist Derek Jarman, is at risk of being sold privately, its contents dispersed, and artistic legacy lost.
For 12 years FLAMIN have championed artists working in his spirit through the Jarman Award and we are proud to support the #SaveProspectCottage campaign. Led by Art Fund in conjunction with Creative Folkstone and Tate, the campaign aims to raise £3.5 million before 31 March 2021 in order to save the site, archive a number of Jarman’s key works and establish a permanently funded programme of residencies for artists, writers, gardeners and more.
The art and film worlds are uniting to help save this key monument to Jarman’s legacy, with artists including Jeremy Deller, Tacita Dean and Michael Craig Martin contributing unique artworks to be bought as part of the fundraising effort.
