As a creative and educational charity, Peckham Platform brings together local communities and leading artists to co-produce creative projects, playing an active and essential role in making art accessible to all with a particular focus on the hyper local to support resident communities We define this way of working as Social Art.
Art plays such a vital role in life, wellbeing, and social discourse, that we are committed to ensuring that it is focused on the experiences of local people and directly responds to their needs.
We are part of a cultural network connecting a mix of new and established, working class, creative and often vulnerable residents. Through our community embedded programming we collaborate with our communities so they can lead in negotiating rapid changes in the area as well as to make space for each other.
Together we are better positioned to face the challenges of rapid regeneration, providing a safe space for people to create art, question it, connect with it, be influenced and lead with it.
