Festival of Community

10 – 20 August 2023

Staffordshire St presents a Festival of Community, co-curated with Peckham Platform and F.A.T Studio. The collaborative programme of workshops, events and fiestas will celebrate our neighbourhood and the communities that fill its streets. Exploring notions of community, place and belonging, over two long weekends Staffordshire St will become a locus for playful creativity and celebratory knowledge sharing.

F.A.T. Studio CIC is a not-for-profit creative studio, based on Old Kent Road. Since 2019 we’ve been collaborating with our neighbours to organise joyful, creative activities in SE London.

Peckham Platform is a creative and educational charity based in Peckham. They bring local communities together with leading artists to co-produce social art that responds directly to the needs and concerns of the people involved.

Staffordshire St is an independent project space in Peckham. The venue facilitates arts and cultural events and provides affordable studios for artists, makers and designers. ​
