A ten-day festival of contemporary art focused on new work by emerging artists in public space. The festival is free and open to everyone.
Since 1999 Deptford X has brought an annual art extravaganza to the unique setting of Deptford, combining work by invited artists with that of the area's diverse creative communities. Since 2016, a revitalised programme has focused on commissioning cutting-edge work by emerging artists and a radically open, artist-centred approach.
The festival runs over ten action-packed days and takes place in a wide range of public sites and spaces. It has two central elements: the curated Platform programme and the open Fringe programme.
A number of the programme activities will be taking place in Deptford Market Yard, for details of specific events, dates and times visit the Deptford X website.
Deptford X launched in 1998 as a visual arts festival focused on public space in Deptford. It was an artist-led project rooted in Deptford’s thriving creative communities.
Deptford X became a registered charity in 2001 and is a not-for-profit organisation. It receives regular funding from Lewisham Council, project funding from Arts Council England and sponsorship from a range of partners.
