Prospect Cottage needs you now
On the windswept shore of Dungeness, visionary British filmmaker, artist and activist Derek Jarman (1942-94) transformed a Victorian fisherman’s hut into a sanctuary of art and imagination. Prospect Cottage and its iconic garden stand testament to his defiant spirit, and have the potential to inspire artists and visitors long into the future. But they are at risk. Help Art Happens raise £3.5 million to #SaveProspectCottage, and secure its future as a centre of creative activity – for everyone.

Tacita Dean - Location photography at Denge, 1999 - 2020
Print of a location photograph taken by Dean during the filming of her 1999 16mm film Sound Mirrors. The concrete listening devices are situated at Denge, which lies just over the road from Dungeness. Derek Jarman himself used the long 'wall' mirror in a scene from The Garden. In the text that accompanied the film, Dean wrote of how the mirrors were spared from destruction 'and left to stand, solemnly eavesdropping on the sounds of Dungeness into the next century.' She also described how Derek gave her back the Kent and Dungeness she knew as a child: 'The Garden was so full of possibility and magic and metamorphosis that it created a new conceptual place as well as reclaiming the old one.'
