2021 Deptford X Programme
This year’s festival will take the form of an outdoor Art Trail around Deptford. Festival visitors will be able to collect a map and use it to discover outdoor work situated in and around Deptford.
This year it is our intention to bring art and creativity out into the open to create joy and healing in our communities in the wake of the pandemic.
There will be a strong emphasis on artworks in the public realm so that we can create a walkable art trail, bringing art & the festive spirit fully and joyfully into the open for all to enjoy.
We want the festival to be:
- Rooted in the fabric of our neighbourhoods and the people who live and work within them.
- A showcase for local creativity and innovation, using any manner of outdoor space
Deptford X 2021 will include four open call elements:
All of our open calls are free to apply to and are open to artists, local residents, children, young adults and local businesses. We also welcome artists from neighbouring boroughs.
In addition to the festival projects below, the Art Trail will also consist of further commissions by artists selected by the Deptford X director, and projects initiated by our peer network for People of Colour; Support Network.
