'You are here'- Call out for Artists at People's Day

People's Day would like to hear from performance artist and visual artists around the curation of an exciting creative space at Peoples Day.


Lewisham People’s Day started 34 years ago and has grown to be one of south east London’s biggest free festivals. This unique community festival with seven stages of live music, dance, circus, visual arts and comedy welcomes over 1,000 performers, 150 exhibitors and 25,000 visitors every year. This year People’s Day will take place on Saturday 7 July from 12noon to 8pm at Mountsfield Park, Catford, SE6 1AN.   

They are looking for innovative, entertaining and engaging work to showcase and exciting ideas on how visitors could be impacted and potentially participate in installations, artwork being created, immersive theatre or as an audience to your exciting work.  There will be a dedicated space on the bandstand and a workshop area but they are open to ideas around the use of the whole site.  They aim to include LGBTQ artists, disabled artists and older artists.

There will be opportunities for artists involved to benefit from organised networking and space on a funding workshop event with Art Council for Grants for the Arts advice.

Funding is available for performers and they can offer excellent technical support with their production partners, Continental Drifts.  

If you would like to apply please complete and return the attached application form by Wednesday the 18 April to Nancy Stridgen

If you would like to discuss your ideas please contact Nancy Stridgen on 0208 314 9608 or Kellie Blake on 020 8314 6578.
