THe 2018 Festival takes the theme of All's Well from the camberwell Coat of Arms
From 16th – 24th June, Camberwell will become a crucible of scientific and artistic experimentation and collaboration. We have artists of all kinds (dancers, musicians, poets and players, designers, makers, upcyclers), getting involved in:
Made in Camberwell Market
Health and Wellbeing Workshops in Camberwell Library
Fringe Events and venues
Not for Sale boards and Alley Gallery
Open studios is a key part of the annual festival and will take place over the weekend of 16-17 June 2018. Open Studios gives you, the visitor, the opportunity to see inside artist's workshops and studios and see their work in progress. It gives artists the opportunity to exhibit from their work-space and meet the buyers, curators and curious visitors interested in their work. To see who is taking part this June, visit our Open Studios Summer 2018 webpage here.
Each year we have an arts market which features hand made arts and crafts by local artists and makers. This year we will be on Camberwell Green on Saturday 23 June.
Beside the arts market, and drawing even more people to Camberwell Green on Saturday 23 June, we will offer creative activities that you can drop in and out of, as your time and desires dictate. We are inviting dog owners to let their imaginations go wild in a 'doggy dress up' parade on the Green. And for those with a 'bake-off' talent we will run our 'Artist-inspired cake competition'. Last year's winner was a lemon drizzle cake in the style of Matisse cut out pictures.
Stay tuned for more info about the day
Health and Wellbeing free 'taster' workshops
Camberwell Arts Festival theme in 2018 is All’s Well, the motto on Camberwell’s coat of arms. To celebrate this we have an amazing programme of ‘taster’ sessions at Camberwell Library every afternoon between 18 – 22 June. While many of the sessions will be a fusion of arts and wellbeing, they will all in one way or another embrace the 5 ways of wellbeing: connect, be active, keep learning, take note and give. We will announce when the Eventbrite booking forms are prepared and it will be possible to guarantee your place by booking, otherwise you can take a chance and turn up on the day.
If you find the workshop you want is in the middle of your working day, why not take a half day off work and invest in yourself, your health and your wellbeing. Investments should not just be valued in money, but also in time and self-esteem. Let's make All's Well a positive outcome for all.
the festival fringe has a brilliant and varied programme
There are dancers performing, actors playing, painters exhibiting, workshops by designers, knitters nibbling, events at the intersection between art and health, and so much more to see, taste, feel, hear and touch. Some will be free, some need to be booked, some will be aimed at specific age groups. Our full programme of Fringe Events will be seen online and in our Festival brochure. Don't miss out...
