Southwark Untold With PemPeople

Drop in for a programme of activities showcasing Southwark's talent, history and community projects

Join PemPeople and travelling gallery Project Mission Gallery for a week of workshops, discussions, exhibitions and performances. Our activities will showcase under-represented creative producers based within the London borough of Southwark.

Our programme reflects the ethos of community building, arts organising and social activism that defines the collaboration of PemPeople and Project Mission Gallery. It encourages and supports engagement and interaction between the generations, with drop-in activities for everyone from school age children to adult visitors.

This event is programmed by PemPeople, a Tate Exchange Associate.

It forms a bridge with the council, institutions and charities; enabling local residents the opportunity to showcase the wealth of talent that exists within the community, and creating opportunities for local people to initiate and develop solutions to local issues.

With the increasing and fast regeneration in the borough its important that Pempeople ensures that local residents benefit from the rapid changes within the area.
