Peckham Space is a new participatory programme of contemporary art in south London.
The Peckham Space Exhibition offers opportunities to engage with the programme of commissions so far plus view design plans for the future gallery to be built on Peckham Square.
The exhibition features newly commissioned work from the artists Harold Offeh, The People Speak, Lottie Child and Furtherfield.org.
Peckham TV was the inaugural commission of Peckham Space in June 2008, featuring artists Harold Offeh and The People Speak. Offeh?s research into Afro-futurism asked residents in Peckham to consider the future of their neighbourhood. During this research a resident proposed a ?positive advert? for Peckham to combat negative media portrayal of the area.
Peckham Street Training was Peckham Space's second project featuring artist Lottie Child and net art organisation Furtherfield.org. Child?s research into playful uses of public space was taken to Gloucester Primary School where students were invited to develop an alternative tour of Peckham using Street Training techniques developed during workshops.
Peckham Space marks the start of a new partnership between Camberwell College of Arts, University of the Arts London and Southwark Council.
