Deptford X 2020
Thanks to Arts Council England’s Emergency Response Fund, this year's Deptford X's 2020 Festival will take the form of DX Online, a programme of remote online projects.
Deptford X Online will act as an incubator for the next Deptford X festival. The conversations, relationships, research, ideas and work forged during this time will offer a reflection on both the failures and possibilities laid bare by the global Covid 19 pandemic. Through this we can learn how to be together again in a future Deptford X festival.
As part of our new online programme we are excited to announce two open calls for paid artist opportunities; How to be together again – Residencies at home and Artists on the Phone, as well as calls for participants in two further discussion-based programmes; Support Network and The Future is a Collective Project, which we provide more details on, in due course.
