People's Day would like to hear from performance artist and visual artists around the curation of an exciting creative space at Peoples Day.


Open Until:

Posted: 10/03/2022

Lewisham People’s Day started
34 years ago and has grown to be one of south east London’s biggest free
festivals. This unique community festival with seven stages of live music,
dance, circus, visual arts and comedy welcomes over 1,000 performers, 150
exhibitors and 25,000 visitors every year. This year People’s Day will take
place on Saturday 7 July from 12noon to 8pm at Mountsfield Park, Catford, SE6

They are looking for
innovative, entertaining and engaging work to showcase and exciting ideas on
how visitors could be impacted and potentially participate in installations,
artwork being created, immersive theatre or as an audience to your exciting
work.  There will be a dedicated space on the bandstand and a workshop
area but they are open to ideas around the use of the whole site.  They aim
to include LGBTQ artists, disabled artists and older artists.

There will be opportunities
for artists involved to benefit from organised networking and space on a
funding workshop event with Art Council for Grants for the Arts advice.

Funding is available for
performers and they can offer excellent technical support with their production
partners, Continental Drifts.  

If you would like to apply
please complete and return the attached application form by Wednesday the 18
April to Nancy Stridgen

If you would like to
discuss your ideas please contact Nancy Stridgen on 0208 314 9608 or Kellie
Blake on 020 8314 6578.

"Just to say a huge thanks ... I am looking forward to progressing with this project thanks to your support, advice and guidance"
