Supported Applications Now Open

18 February 2020

Apply for Deptford X Supported

Launched in 2019, Supported is intended to widen access to participation in the festival by providing funding, production and curatorial support to successful applicants. We are committed to the aim of celebrating and promoting the creativity in our area and with 49.3% of Lewisham’s population constituting BAME groups, this opportunity is aimed primarily at BAME artists and curators based in the London borough of Lewisham. Applications from people based outside of our local borough will also be considered, provided they can demonstrate how their work will resonate with our geographical context.

Contributions are welcome from artists or curators of all levels. We are looking for exhibitions, films, performances, happenings, workshops, interventions into the local landscape, and any other kind of arts project that will contribute to 2020’s 10 day Deptford X festival.

All Supported applications will be reviewed by a guest selection panel who will consider the concept, quality and cost of each project before selecting the finalists. Funding will then be allocated between each successful project.

We are delighted to announce that this year’s guest panel are:

Evan Ifekoya
Michelle Williams Gamaker
Tyreis Holder
Harold Offeh


Deadline: Midnight 19 April 2020
