From Saturday 14th until Sunday 22nd June, the Camberwell Arts Festival draws together some of the best talent in the area, celebrating the visual arts, music, cinema, performance and design. This is our 20th year, so our inspiration is the number twenty, and what that might mean to Camberwell.
We’re now getting to close to finalising our own programme but, as ever, aim to make this festival a celebration of everything going on in the area. As part of the festival we’ll be producing a programme both online and in print. We’d love to involve as many activities as we can and need your help!
We break this down into four key areas:
Open Call: Fringe Events
If you’re an artist, maker, performer, clown, comedian, gardener, designer (etc) and would like to submit an idea we’d love to hear from you and get you listed. Sadly we’re unable to provide a budget but if you have your own location and permission for a piece of work, please let us know and we’ll help bring the crowd with some promotional support.
An open entry exhibition that takes place out in the open! 20 short listed artists will be allocated a street, park or public building in Camberwell through a lucky dip process. They will receive a budget of £100 to create an artwork specifically for that location in order to compete for the 4th Camberwell Open Prize.
If you run or own a studio in the area and would like to open your doors to the public during the festival, please get in contact
If you’re already running a festival, exhibition or workshop in the area during the festival and would like it listed in the festival programme we’d love to hear from you.
The deadline for submitting your events or work is Sunday 20th April. After this date we’ll be producing the programme and going to print. To submit your events or work, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, detailing which category you fall into by putting it in the subject line. Don’t forget to include your web addresses, Facebook pages and Twitter feeds.
Also, if you have any photos, old memories or mementos of festival gone past please do send them through to us so we can start to build a library.
See you in June!
