Call Out: Southwark Based Artist

Theatre Peckham is looking to commission a Southwark based artist to create an installation that incorporates audio and visual elements in our Foyer, based on archival material and oral histories collected by the community as we approach our 40th anniversary. This is an exciting opportunity for an artist to delve into the rich history of Theatre Peckham and creatively respond to rich, exciting material. 

Our Heritage Champions along with Theatre Peckham’s Young Ambassadors will receive archival training and run focus groups to collect oral histories between February and April 2024. During this time, the artist will communicate with the researchers, as the information is being gathered to get a sense of the material early in the process. Following this period, the artist will start working on their installation for it to be ready in Autumn 2024, to transform our foyer for our Young, Gifted and Black Season and beyond. 

£3000 commissioning fee
Additionally, we will provide for up to £2000 for materials
