Bob & Roberta Smith will be lead artist-in-residence throughout the festival, working on a new painting at the Deptford X HQ, Creekside, and encouraging visitors to contribute their own ideas to create a collective statement about WHAT IS THE VALUE OF ART? Activities at the Art Party will include sign-painting and badgemaking, screen-printing demonstrations by Art Hub artists and performances from local musicians, culminating in a special event at 5pm on Sunday 5th October – everyone is invited to come and get involved!

The festival will also showcase new work by Janette Parris, Jessica Voorsanger and Kaori Homma as well as 30 selected Fringe projects, plus many more gallery exhibitions, open studios, workshops, talks, tours and events, happening in a diverse range of venues across Deptford, South East London.

The Deptford X launch begins at 6pm on Friday 26th September, when many local galleries will also open late in association with SLAM Fridays.
