This year we ran our biggest ever Artist Development Programme. Winners of the Artist Showcase will be performing on the Camberwell Stage 330-530pm as part of the Odd Motion showcase.

Read more about the programme below and watch out for it next year!

Artist Development Programme

Our mission is to support and nurture the next generation of artists.

Since the first Camberwell Fair in 2015, the Camberwell Stage has provided a platform for local and emerging artists to showcase themselves in front of an enthusiastic audience of thousands of Londoners on a high quality professional PA system.

We have partnered with music curators and charities including The Midi Music Company, Odd Motion and School Ground Sounds to showcase their talent.

In addition to these showcasing opportunities, in 2018 we expanded the Artist Development Programme. This year we are expanding the programme still further to make it as inclusive as possible and to make sure that the Fair is not just a one-day flurry of activity but has lasting impact on Camberwell and surrounding areas.

GREAT! SO… WHAT’S ACTUALLY GOING TO HAPPEN?
