Fringe 2018

A vibrant open programme of independent projects.

Relaunched in 2016, the Fringe sits alongside the Platform programme at the heart of the festival. Each year Deptford X extends an open call to artists, groups, curators and gallerists to contribute to the forthcoming festival through exhibitions, performances, screenings, open studios, workshops and other events. Supported and facilitated by Deptford X, the Fringe celebrates the strength and diversity of contemporary art practice, with a focus on the work of local artists.

This year, the Fringe was bigger than ever, with almost 100 projects taking place across 62 venues. 

*We depend on Fringe project organisers for information about wheelchair accessibility and have displayed relevant info on each fringe page. We recommend that wherever possible you double-check with venues before you visit.
