Camberwell Arts Festival 2018: A Cure for What Ails You

The Camberwell Arts Festival 2018 begins this Saturday, 16th June, running for a whole nine days. Here’s the official lowdown…

9 days of art to make you feel better

This year’s Camberwell Arts Festival will explore the theme of All’s Well – the motto adopted by the Metropolitan Borough of Camberwell when they were granted the right to a coat of arms in 1901.

For nine days, Camberwell is set to become a crucible of artistic and scientific experimentation as arts and health practitioners collaborate to explore the unique mix of the area. Part science lab, part art studio All’s Well will offer a varied programme of exhibitions, events, talks, walks, workshops and open studios inviting you to take the Camberwell Arts Cure.

The varied programme includes easeful exhibitions, soothing shows and well-being workshops. Providing the opportunity to sing aah with the House of Praise Gospel Singers, join the Strange Women Society of South London to ferment kimchi or untangle your weekly woes with Knit and Nibble. Check out new art by recovering addicts and check-in emotional baggage at The Embodiment Cloakroom. From an art health and beauty spa to autism friendly arts, a doggy dress up parade to African drumming, you can get your daily dose of art at this year’s Camberwell Arts Festival.

It all kicks off on the Green at 12pm on Saturday. There’s a full line-up in the brochure (you might also find a printed one in a local hostelry).
