Deptford X exists to promote the best contemporary visual art and celebrate that art with the widest possible audience. It is an arts event born of Deptford’s creative community and based on a belief in the limitless potential of the area.
The festival brings together some of the greatest artists from around the globe to Deptford, south-east London and mixes them with some of the most creative talent living in the area’
Taking place 26th September – 5th October in and around Deptford!
Hurray for The Living Room and hurray DX14. Together we will be beautiful!!
Since I began to work on this project a year ago I have been lucky enough to meet and work with lots of different groups, organisations and individuals local to Lewisham but also across London. The content of these meetings has been diverse from gardening projects to teenage fashion and photography projects. Each one has had ups and downs but have ultimately been valuable experience and ones that I will be able to draw from in the planning and delivery of The Living Room Project.
So this has had some effect on the shape of the project and the decisions that I am now making as the dates, places and support are becoming confirmed.Some workshops have already been facilitated earlier this year with a sixth form center. and the next lot have been confirmed to take place in August with Deptford Action Group for Elderly (DAGE) at their tea room and charity shop on Deptford High Street. The rest will (fingers crossed) be confirmed this week- with hopefully quite a few free public workshops taking place so be sure to watch out for them. More details will follow as I draw up a exciting jam packed timetable
I am also very happy to confirm that I have now secured a space for the Living Room to take place during Deptford X. So after a small wait I am very pleased that my first choice…. (drum roll please) The Deptford Lounge are on board and will be the hosts of the project for the duration of DX14.
So please keep in touch with the project- through the my twitter or through the Think Big blog which has more regular updates.
