Supported 2019

Depford X's new Supported strand is intended to widen access to participation in the festival by providing funding, production and curatorial support to successful applicants. Depford X is committed to the aim of celebrating and promoting the creativity in our area and with 49.3% of Lewisham’s population constituting BAME groups, this opportunity is aimed primarily at BAME artists and curators based in the London boroughs of Lewisham or Greenwich. Applications from non-BAME people will be considered if they can demonstrate how their work engages with the diversity of the area and Deptford X’s commitment to equality. Applications from people based outside of our local boroughs will also be considered, provided they can demonstrate how their work is relevant to its geographical context. 

Contributions are welcome from artists or curators of any kind. Depford X is looking for exhibitions, films, performances, happenings, workshops, interventions into the local landscape, and any other kind of arts project that will contribute to 2019’s 10 day Deptford X festival.

Depford X encourage applications that creatively respond to this year’s starting point, Stop Making Sense.
