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.

To mark Carers Rights Day 25 November 2021, we are shining a much-needed light on carers – the hidden heroes in our communities.A carer is anyone of any age, who looks after a family member, partner or friend who needs help. This could because physical or mental ill-health or because they are unable to cope with the demands of daily life due to an addiction. These carers give such valuable care without payment.For many unpaid carers, caring for their loved ones can be a delicate balancing act, done whilst managing their own day to day routine like study, work and other commitments. According to Carers UK, “not being able to talk to friends about caring, leaves one in three unpaid carers socially isolated”There are many carers in Southwark. Young and old. Many are hidden.On Carers Rights Day and beyond, we are keen to support those who do not often see themselves as carers and as a result, miss out on the valuable support available to them.In particular, we want to signpost young carers – who are often at greater risk of physical and mental health problems and may also experience higher levels of social isolation and loneliness – to useful resources and support. ...
