Public art pieces are often gifts for local communities. For instance, the artworks commissioned for the Folkestone Triennial were temporary or permanent artists’ contribution to the town’s life and landscape.

A tradition of offering and exchanging objects between communities still exists in many cultures. Pieces of art and craft become a symbol of respect and friendship. These days an array of objects including art works travel around the world and change their owners.

Imagine a public art work that would be inspired by these factors and could be a gift for a chosen local community.
