Peckham Platform celebrates the Rye Lane Reconnected Project (2023-2024) with two free events in March. The second is a panel event at Lex2 on March 20th at 6pm with artists Meera Shakti Osborne and Tyreis Holder (RSVP here).

Rye Lane Reconnected is a community-led creative programme seeking to support engagement and collaboration between leading social artists, local residents and frontline community groups to collaboratively commission and create artworks for Peckham’s historic and iconic Rye Lane.

Over the past year, young people from Southwark’s Youth Justice Service, South London Refugee Association, and Inspire Walworth have collaborated with artists including Koby Martin, Tyreis Holder, and Meera Shakti Osborne.Together, they explored community, heritage and identity to reconnect to public spaces on their own terms. 

This co-commission was made possible with generous funding and support from Arts Council England, Art Fund, Culture Together, Cleaner Greener Safer, Neighborhood fund, London Borough of Southwark, and Grocers Foundation.

This event provides a fantastic opportunity to learn more about the artworks and meet local creatives.
