Our new Supported strand 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 boroughs of Lewisham or Greenwich. Applications from non-BAME people will be considered if they can demonstrate how their work engages with the diversity of the area and Deptford X’s commitment to equality. Applications from people based outside of our local boroughs will also be considered, provided they can demonstrate how their work is relevant to our geographical context.
Deadline 14 July 2019
