NEW FESTIVAL PRODUCER FOR DEPTFORD X

At the end of June we waved goodbye to Matthew Couper who has been the Deptford X Director for the past eight years. Matthew is taking up a new post with the Arts team at Southwark Council and for those of you who know him, I’m sure you’ll want to join with me in wishing him the very best of luck.

We are delighted to welcome Caroline Underwood as our new Festival Producer. Caz was instrumental in organising Deptford X’s highly successful flashmob last year in Deptford High Street at the start of the festival – she also replicated the flashmob at Lead Artist Bob & Roberta Smith’s Art Party Conference in Scarborough in November.

Caz is an artist in her own right, is an active member of South London Women Artists and also works on educational projects with children and adults – last year she was an Artist Researcher Educator in residence at the Centre for Arts & Learning, Goldsmiths. She has worked with Matthew for the last month at Deptford X and is now ready to take the festival forward: welcome Caz!

Finally, just a quick reminder: Deptford X 2014 is from 26 September to 5 October. We’re looking forward to seeing you there!

Chair, Deptford X

Matthew has overseen some incredible events including large scale installations by Mark Titchner, Hew Locke, David Mach and Bob & Roberta Smith. Matthew said “It has been a privilege to work on such a great festival working with a range of great artists who have produced amazing and unexpected works that make Deptford X such a unique event. I am now delighted to hand over to the wonderful Caroline Underwood, who I am sure can help build the festival over the coming years.”
