The Camberwell A-Z

As you may of heard, Camberwell Arts Festival is going digital this June. The theme of this year’s festival is the A – Z of Camberwell. In March & April we had an online poll for the public to pick their definitive A – Z. This afternoon we will be releasing these themes through our newsletter, and each day thereafter we are releasing one letter a day on social media. We are asking the public to respond with their artwork (drawing, poetry, dance, theatre etc), which we will be collecting and hosting as an online exhibition during the festival (13 – 21 June).

A quick sample of our first three days

  • A is for Art School
  • B is for Burgess Park
  • C is for Camberwell Fair


We’re interested in getting as broad and diverse range of responses as possible. So we thought we’d reach out and encourage Camberwell service users to respond to the theme’s so we can include their works in our online exhibition.

Our full list of A-Z selected themes are on our website – https://www.camberwellarts.org.uk/camberwell-a-z. As I mentioned we’ll be highlighting a new letter every day on our social media channels. You can submit works by responding to our hashtah #CamberwellAtoZ or via our uploader https://www.camberwellarts.org.uk/upload-camberwell-a-to-z.

We’d be delighted to hear from service users and include them in the A – Z!

Feel free to get in touch if you have any questions about the A – Z of Camberwell, or the festival in general.

Take part in a crowdsourced documentary with Ridley Scott and Kevin Macdonald, to be shown at the Sundance Film Festival.

"On July 25, grab your camera or smartphone and film your day. You might record a typical day ⁠— going to work, connecting with family, being with friends. Or maybe something special is happening – it’s your wedding day, you have important news to share, or you’re having a baby. You could show us lockdown in your city, how your world is opening up, or something you’re fighting for. Alternatively, you could choose to film someone you find interesting and spend the day capturing their July 25th.

Submissions are open from July 25 – August 2. After submissions close, a team of researchers and editors will review the clips received. If your footage is used in the final film, we will contact you later in the year."

Get creative, Camberwell!
