Community Arts Festival 11-14 February 2016

An amazing array of cultural, musical and artistic talent was on show over the long weekend of the SEE16 Festival. With the generous support of Grosvenor and British Land, over 30 events were held in seventeen venues scattered across SE16. Many people became aware of new and different aspects of community arts through this celebration – as performers, participants or hosts. We were immensely privileged to have the engagement of many of the creative talent in the district and hope that we will be able to hold another carnival of the arts in 2017.

We only operate on the basis of volunteers and on this occasion two people took the burden of organising the festival – Sam Gregory and Loredana Campisi Green. We are indebted to them for much heart-ache, hard work and inspiration. Next time, we need to find more people with an equal dedication and vision for the festival. If you want another one in 2017, then get in touch and we’ll start the organising in September 2016.
