Deptford X Fringe is a uniquely un-juried programme that celebrates and promotes the area’s art scene.

Deptford X 2022 celebrates the foundations of the festival’s beginnings with a focus on the long-running Fringe of local artists’ projects, concentrated around Deptford High Street. As ever, the festival invites artists to show new or existing works; champions new voices; and brings people together in Deptford to encounter the very best of contemporary art practice.


Fringe bursaries were available to artists who would benefit from financial support to enable their participation in Deptford X 2022. Eight projects received bursaries this year: Iris; Cue For Art; Mobile Cinema; Bottoms Up!; Silver Signings; Bike Dykes; (para)site: a discharge of cultural sewage; and Here Are Girls.
