Arts projects and programmes

 Annual programmes 

Each year the arts team runs an Annual Programme. Themed around topical events these programmes work in partnership with organisations and artists across the Borough to deliver a wide range of free arts events and activities to local residents and visitors.

In 2017-2018 we are delighted to announce the launch of two exciting programmes:

Camden Flux 



2017 sees the 50th anniversary of the Sexual Offences Act (1967) which introduced the partial decriminalisation of same sex relationships in England and Wales via an act of Parliament. Throughout the year Camden will host a wide range of events, screenings, exhibitions, talks and online articles to explore the history of LGBTQ+ culture and to look towards the future in this ever changing social and cultural landscape.
