NewsSubmit your work to #OPEN15


Peckham Platform is delighted to announce its sixth OPEN exhibition!

We invite people with a connection to Peckham to celebrate its vibrant creative community by contributing artworks to exhibit together at Peckham Platform. To date we have exhibited more than 600 artworks on our gallery walls in the run up to Christmas in a fantastic display of local talent.

There is a registration fee of £5 to take part in the OPEN; these funds will go towards the installation costs of the exhibition. Please note that there will be a concessionary rate available for children and those that cannot afford the registration fee. To apply for concessionary rates you will need to bring along proof of ID on registration. All works that meet the submission criteria will be included (see submission form for criteria). All works on display during the exhibition will be available for sale directly from the artist. Perfect for those creative Christmas shopping ideas.

We will be awarding prizes to the artworks that get the most public votes as part of our ‘peoples choice’ competition. There will be prizes awarded to the top three artworks. Make sure you cast your vote and don’t miss out.
