One of the best known prizes for visual arts in the world, Turner Prize 2019 is coming to Turner Contemporary in Margate. Every other year, the Prize leaves Tate Britain and is presented at a venue outside London. Four of the most exciting artists working right now are shortlisted to win the prize based on an outstanding exhibition that has taken place in the previous year. This year’s finalists include Lawrence Abu Hamdan, Helen Cammock, Oscar Murillo and Tai Shani.

This tour is delivered in British Sign Language by Jason Tennant without an interpreter or voiceover. Jason is a Deaf Role Model and Mentor to Deaf people in the local community. Jason is a Director at Palm Deaf Community Services where he teaches BSL and Deaf Awareness sessions.
