Since 1999 Deptford X has brought an annual art extravaganza to the unique setting of Deptford, combining work by invited artists with that of the area’s diverse creative communities. Since 2016, a revitalised programme has focused on commissioning cutting-edge work by emerging artists and a radically open, artist-centred approach. 👌🏽
At its heart are two programmes which together give the festival its unique character:
- Platform, a set of five commissions for emerging artists in public spaces
- Fringe, an expansive open programme of independent projects
Deptford X will also present a commissioned Special Project and a range of tours, talks and learning activities.
Festival programmes will take place over 10 days in a wide range of public sites and spaces; many projects will engage audiences in active and unexpected ways.
