We are pleased to announce Péjú Oshin as Peckham Platform’s new Chair of Trustees

Péjú joined the Board of Peckham Platform in 2018 as a Youth Platform Trustee to support the growth of our younger audience programme. Today as Chair, Péjú will provide leadership to the Board and ensure Peckham Platform’s charitable aims provide a public benefit.

Péjú will uphold the vision of the organisation and is dedicated to the creation of a connected society through work that responds directly to the concerns of individuals within the local community.

“As a child, I spent a lot of time in Peckham, and I always felt it was amazing to see Peckham Platform right there in the heart of Peckham Square, in reach of everyone. Peckham Platform has been at the forefront of socially engaged art for years, and I want to see it continue that work – inspiring, empowering and connecting communities for generations to come.”

Peckham Platform’s capital campaign, Everyone’s Platform will steer the vision through a new, permanent home on Peckham Square in 2023.
