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 were delighted to announce the launch of two exciting programmes:
Our festival Camden Kalā shone a spotlight on India’s vibrant heritage both within Camden and beyond. Our programme explored dance, music, film, academic text and the visual arts. Family workshops, walking tours, artists’ film screenings, yoga and food were also featured. Local partners included: The Place, Roundhouse, Central St Martins, Akademi, Quiet Down There and others, International partners include Tarq Gallery (Mumbai), Chatterjee and Lal (Mumbai).
2017 saw 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 hosted a wide range of events, screenings, exhibitions, talks and online articles to explore the history of LGBTQ+ culture.
