Over the years many artists and writers have been drawn to Camberwell, including Picasso, Ernest Hemingway, Andy Warhol, The Brontes, Rembrandt and Virginia Woolf (to name but a few) and each have left their indelible mark on this particular area of South London.
OPEN HOUSE at Camberwell College of Arts
Explore the Summer Shows and take part in fantastic free arts workshops, such as photography, mono printing, animation, flip books, kaleidoscopes, performance and more. Our highly popular t-shirt screen-printing workshop has limited spaces only, so make sure you come in early to reserve a place and don't forget to bring your own t-shirts or bags!
Camberwell artists create studios in extraordinary places, from garages to garden sheds, Victorian carriage works to disused swimming baths. Open Studios provides an opportunity to visit some of the major studio collectives in Camberwell.
Camberwell Swimming Pool is the backdrop for an evening of water-based entertainment, from Tracey Rose's video of underwater basketball players to Liz Bentley's troupe of synchronised swimmers. Watch video art, comedy and performance art and listen to some of London's most up and coming bands.
MERVYN PEAKE: THE MAN AND HIS ART
Mervyn Peake was a writer, artist, illustrator and a former tutor at Camberwell College of Arts. He is best known for his Gormenghast trilogy but also wrote poetry, short stories and plays for adults and children. Inspired by his father's incredible collection of paintings, photographs and letters, Sebastian Peake provides an exclusive insight into one of the most creative minds of the 20th Century.

Coinciding with Love Parks Week, this year's Camberwell Arts Festival takes art out of the gallery and into the many green spaces of SE5. Camberwell Green itself forms the starting point for an exhibition that spills out onto local parks, pavements, shops and galleries to form a green art trail throughout Camberwell.
PAINT THE WHOLE TOWN GREEN
Help us to paint the town green at our opening event for Camberwell Green on Sunday 15th June, from 2 - 6pm. From sculpture to a contemporary take on the park railing painting phenomena, there are art activities on offer for everyone.
Stella Duffy will talk about her work and read from her latest novel, The Room of Lost Things. With scenes set in Camberwell, the novel was published by Virago in February and was longlisted for the Orange Prize.
