Description

Peckham Festival is a hyper-local event with a single aim of celebrating creative and cultural Peckham. We exist to to promote artists, makers, creators, and community groups with a particular focus on an inclusive approach to local BME, youth and LGBTQI groups whilst expanding the public’s awareness and access to culture in all its forms: from access to workshops, art, music, written & spoken word, performance, community groups, health and wellbeing. Created in 2016, and with two successful events delivered, this initiative has already created new pathways to community outreach and support; identified and brought cultural activity to underused public and private spaces and forged community connections through the encouragement of local participation alongside promotion of creative growth and creative enterprise. In 2017 the festival attracted well over 15,000 people to 183 events across 65 venues; involving 38 restaurants or bars, 9 galleries, 171 individual artists, 12 creative businesses across 12 artist studio complexes, and showcased 17 local musical acts and 15 non-profit community groups - all ably assisted by 68 volunteers made up of local members of the community. Peckham Festival is proud to have become a Community Interest Company (CIC) and we continue to be free to the public and 100% not for profit. Company Number 11206351 The third annual festival will take place between 14-16 September 2018
