Deptford X + AAJA Radio

To compliment this year's outdoor programme, artists have an opportunity to submit sound works as part of this year's festival.

New for 2021, Deptford X is partnering with AAJA, a community focused radio station, record label and performance space based in the railway arches in Deptford Market Yard. For one week, audiences will be able to tune into AAJA Music at midday to listen to new audio commission for the festival.

Successful projects received £300 to bring their project to life.
